ive known I'm bi for around 2 years, I have a girlfriend and I want to go to prom with her but I would have to come out to my mum first. only problem is that she's one of the most homophobic people you could meet. I remember her telling me that ' i'd better not turn out to be a f*g or she'd beat me up and kick me to the curb '. I was 6 at the time. I'm 15 now and I can still remember that evening like it was yesterday. lately I haven't been able to sleep because ive been that worried and it's impacting my grades at school. if she kicks me out I have no family to go to and I only have superficial friends who wouldn't take me in. my girlfriends parents don't know either so I can go there.

 

if anyone has any advice please contact me because I'm really stressing out about this.

Hey Kimberly100105,

 

I'm really sorry to hear about this. Feeling the lack of support from your mom at 6 years old.. I'm so sorry.

 

I can see why you'd be worried about coming out, and how you'd like to prepare before telling your mom. We have an article that might be helpful:

And here's another article on conflict resolution-- it might have some tips for your situation:

I hope these help!
