Respect her privacy and her right to disclose her sexuality to your parents when she is ready. It may be rough for you, as I'm sure this was a surprise to you. Ask your sister to talk with you to help you understand how she feels. There is nothing "wrong" with her being a lesbian. It's just who she is, and she needs your love and support.

I know that its ok to be lesbian but then my parents are like orthodox and i don't think that they'll be ok with the fact!!

That is probably why your sister is finding it so hard to tell them. She needs your support, and she will disclose this secret when she is ready. Whether or not they accept it will be up to them; and the consequences of their actions will be their problem.

Keep it mum for now. When your sister is ready to tell your parents she will.Right now she just needs your support to become open with who she is.

Since you are her sibling, and you know for a fact that your parents won't approve her sexuality preference, then you should always be by her side to encourage and guide her. Be with her when she comes out with your parents. It is really difficult on her part. I know the feeling.

I think you should respect her privacy,which is what you should have done before you entered her room without knocking.It's her decision to tell your parents,not yours.I'm sure she'll tell them when she's ready.
