I need help I'm 17 and a lesbian and I don't know if I should tell my family. I know thay love me but will they be able to except me for who I really am? I don't know only a few of my friends know but one of them opened there mouth so today I had other friends that I didn't tell coming up to me asking me stuff about it. It's not that I'm ashamed of who I am but it's difficult to find answers. I have talked to 3 different psyciatrists and they tell me different things. So if they is anyone that has any advice for me what so ever I am game to hear it so please post a response..
