Hi there,my friends already know about it for quite some time but until now my parents still think I am straight... I really don't know how I should tell it to them because I'm afraid of their reactions, what do you advice???:-(

I know if you were my child I would want you to come right out and say it. I've always had a very open comunication with my son. I would not be mad at him for something like this. But all parents do not act that way. So you have to decide how to tell them becuase only you know your parents. I would love my child no matter what. Good luck to you. Be strong and don't be afraid of who you are.

take them to a nice and quiet restaurant, keep the conversation going....and then probably try to test the water by asking them what would their reaction be if you tell them you are gay...act as according to their reaction...if they can accept it, then tell them...if they cant, keep it to yourself forever! Good Luck!

I guess parents always know about that... I guess they can supose it, so I think maybe it won´t be such a huge surprise for them... I guess telling them the truth is telling them, somehow, that you trust in them and that they are important for you... I would advice you to tell them as soon as possible, as that would make you much happier and feel a lot better!! Good luck with it!
