What Do I Do?


Recommended Posts

I recently told my closest friend that I am bi. I have been for 3 years and haven't told anyone. I do have a boyfriend of 4 months that i have known since the 5th grade. So, since I figured out I am bi. I live with my dad and step mom, and they both grew up in a very homophobe space. My grandpa is the most homophobic person you will meet, and Im scared my dad will regect me. I have no idea what to do. I’m worried that if I tell my dad he won’t want me anymore! Any advice would be helpful at this point!

Hi SwaggerFoxx091!


I'm so glad you were able to share and feel supported by your closest friend... it's a great start to a support system that loves and accepts you for your most authentic self! Does your boyfriend know, too?


It's unfortunte your parents grew up in a household that was homophobic-- I wonder how they feel about how the world is getting more progressive! Homophobia is just their fear, and their lack of understanding.


Here's an article with tips on how to come out as bi:




And an article on coming out to your family, that might be helpful:




We'd love to hear about how you came out to your friend, and anyone else you've come out to, on this thread: https://www.ditchthelabel.org/community/forum/sexuality-dating-relationships/27290-if-you-ve-already-come-out-sexuality-share-here


Your safety is key.. and building a support system will help you overcome any rejection you might experience.


Hope this is a helpful start!
