    I found out my father was gay

    when I was 18 at his funeral. I really never had a relationship with him and I am saddened by the emptiness I feel because he felt he had to hide his sexuality from me. I understand why he did, but I also wish he would have respected me enough to know I would have accepted him...

    Daddy

    Daddy was in the closet for almost 18 years of marriage to my mother. I was about 13 when he came out. Hit me like a rock. I was completely sheltered. Honestly thought gay meant happy. Took me a while to get over the shock. My mom didn't help, telling me he was going to burn in...
