...the world ended, well at least in my mothers opinion.
I came out when I was 18. I'd only recently managed to say the words to myself let alone anyone else, and then my mum just asked me based on my circle of friends and the clubs i went to etc.
"Are you gay"
She was not happy, my dad was worse. Their daughter liked other peoples daughters.
I had to move out, quit college to support myself.
But, 6yrs later, they are the most fantastic and supporting parents I could wish for. My mum has since admitted it was less the fact that i'm gay, more that she hadn't known worked it out when I was growing up, and as my mum she felt she should have known snd had somehow let me down.
Well, this may not be the most exciting comming out story,but it's mine all the same, everyone who has done it has one.
