Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 228 People

    Living For The Day

    I too am a gay dad. My wife knows,as does yours. She has also told me that my kids will hate me. I feel that I will always be in the closet until I am able to tell them. I hate living my life like this. Are you still with your wife or divorced?

    Say for instance a new born baby boy has to gay

    fathers. He grows up. Do you think he'll have interest in boys because his parents are gay or will that not have an effect on him. I feel in some cases a child can be brought up gay if that makes sense or can be persuaded to be gay. I don't think every child who is (LGB) are...

    Honestly, my dad would disown me if I told him I am gay. He freaked out about me not wanting to play sports anymore, so I'd imagine he wouldn't take it to well.
