True Life: I'm Out To Everyone, But My Family
Coming out is something that needs to be done on ones own time. It can be a scary moment for plenty of people and also a very personal one. Fear of judgment and ridicule from others who just don't understand is just the beginning of it. For some people, coming out to their family could end their relationships with them. Some religions, and some close minded people, simply don't allow such "behavior." Some people have no issues coming out to their friends, but freeze when it comes to their family. It can be really difficult to hide such a big part of your life from the people who are blood related to you.

This is so tough.

I'm gay and living away at University. My family is super homophobic. I just love my mom all too much and can't really put myself to break her heart. I am getting quite depressed here though...

Maybe you need to sneak off to find your own paradise?

I'm on vacation with my family and the beach next to us is a gay beach...they have no idea how perfect that could've been for me. They also have no idea I like men.

"What ifs" can be scary.

I'm gay and I've told all of my friends, but I can't bring myself to tell my family. I'm sure that they'll be fine with it, I don't know what's stopping me.

Can't blame you for being scared.

I'm lesbian, and I tried to tell my parents when I was bi and they thought it was a phase/trend. I'm terrified to tell them I'm gay.  Especially because my dad is homophobic...

Best of luck.

My religious family doesn't know I'm gay and an atheist. I wonder which awkward family gathering they find out and how bad the backlash will be. It would break my Mom's heart since she was raised Catholic.

Oh man.

My entire family is very homophobic. Then my sister turns around and says, "Out of all of my siblings you'll be the gay one, haha."  She doesn't know I'm bisexual, so I laugh every time.
