Telling the parents

Well, first you've gotta make sure that they are going to be accepting of something like this. If they're not going to be supportive, you may want to consider waiting until you're out on your own and not being supported by your parents.

As far as getting a conversation started, just sit them downafter dinner or something and just tell them like it is. No need to have some dramatic coming out. Try reading the Coming Out page on Oasis.

Good luck,


Some people's kids...I tell ya!
