Coming Out


Recommended Posts

My parents don't support pride at all. I want to come out to them as bisexual but they will be really mad and prolly scream at me. My brother told them that he thinks he likes guys and girls and my dad screamed at him and now my dad won't even talk to him. At all. Should I come out to them or not yet?

Hey there,

I'm sorry to hear they don't support pride and that your dad didn't react well. How is all of this making you feel? I'm wondering, could it be that your dad is in shock right now and might come around to the news eventually?

It literally makes me feel nothing.  and he will never come around to the news cuz he said he will never support.

Hey there,

I know it might be hard to imagine, but I've supported people in a similar situation to you before where their parents eventually came around which came as a surprise after a lot of worry. The love that a parent has for their child is such a strong force in opening even them most closed of minds. 

Can I ask, what did your dad say to your brother when he came out? Did he give any reasons for his behaviour?

That's good and I'm glad he has you to help him :)

I'm wondering, would it be helpful for your brother to have a read of this? https://www.ditchthelabel.org/my-parents-didnt-react-well-to-me-coming-out/

Hey,

That's okay. Could you still show it to him anyway? You're just trying to help him and could say you came across it I guess! We can even delete this post if you're worried about him seeing it. Let me know what you think. Speak soon.
