When I came out to my parents on National Coming Out Day, I was terrified. My parents are both pastors, so I was afraid that they would reject me and take it badly. When I finally got the courage to say the two simple words, my parents reacted far better than I expected. They completely accepted me and told me that they had thought that I may be LGBT in the past. I guess things do typically turn out okay in the end, even if it looks hopeless. (12, male, gay)
