Gotta be caught up

So, my parents know about my sexuality; I told them about a year ago. The problem is they're Christian and completely reject that part of me. We haven't really talked about it since I came out to them, but it's still hanging around the air. There's always those quiet, awkward moments after someone says something when everyone knows everything's thinking about me being gay. It hurts me to know that my family doesn't accept me, and they don't even try to learn what it's all about. All they know is the bible says it's wrong, end of story.

So I think what I'm going to do is do the research for them. I'm going to pull up all the facts about homosexuality not being a choice and all that and show them the video: The Bible Tells Me So. I thought it was a really good documentary and I hope it sheds some light on Christianity and the gay community for them. I don't know.. I guess I'll find out how they take it...

oh.. alright. I'm kinda new to all this stuff so I'm not as caught up on the gay community haha. I mean I've been gay all my life, but it's only now I'm starting to care about just wanting to be out
