When I came out to my parents I wrote them a three-page letter explaining my hidden “gay” life to them. My dad still won’t talk to me like he did before I sent the letter. It breaks my heart because I love him so much, but I love my girlfriend just as much if not more.
When I came out to my high school friends (during college) they all thought I was lying. It is three years later and they all still think it is a phase.
When I came out, I realized what disappointment looked like on a person’s face. My mom’s. Today… we’re still working through it.
