How do I come out to my religious and homophobic family. Every time they see a member of the LGBTQ+ community outside  in public they make fun and they laugh and stare. I'm scared to tell them does being bisexual make me a bad person? when I die do I go to hell?  should I tell them when I move out.

Hi @Kayla D, I noticed that you are new here and I wanted to welcome you to Ditch the Label. It's great to have you here 🙂. I'm Aurora and I am one of the support mentors here.

I'm really glad you found us. This is a really welcoming community and there are lots of others here who have had similar experiences to you. I'm sorry to hear that your family has homophobic views and make fun of the LGBTQ+ community. I would imagine that is a lot for you to deal with! And I'm wondering if this might have influenced the way you think about yourself. What do you think? I noticed that you were asking if being bisexual makes you a bad person and if you will go to hell. It sounds to me like you don't feel comfortable with your sexuality. Is that right? 

Please know that we are here for you!

Hi!, I am going through the same thing you are with my parents but if you think it will ge you kicked out or anything like that don't tell them. Being Bisexual or gay or anything like that does not make you a bad person and you won't go to hell. I will say that before you tell you parents (if you do) make sure you know you are bisexual. Also if you can do you have any friends who know that you are bi or who you can trust to tell so when you tell your parents you have outside suport.
