Coming Out Stories Gallery - Dan

Well, now that I am finally 20 I can continue on with my coming out experiences. Well, at the time one year ago I was forced to come out to my friends,man that was difficult. But over time throughout 1999, i was starting to come to grips that It would be best to tell me best friends whom i graduated with. Thankfully, I was able to tell my best friend Monique at a restaurant, and she was very supportive of me. Later on that month (JUNE 1999) I came out to my sister, who also was ok with it.

Well, I had a very difficult rest of the summer, not getting along with my parents, ending bad relationships, and ending bad work experiences. So, as I wasnt getting along with my parents, I also was wanting to tell them about my homosexuality. But i couldnt, and it hurt bad.

Thankfully, I was able to have a long discussion with my dad in December of '99 and we cleared the air on my attitude from the summer. Telling my mom was very difficult. As a matter of fact we had a "family discussion" or should I say bitch fest....yeah complete bitch fest. Seeing as though my mom has no tact, she asked me directly, bluntly if i was gay, and there was no hiding it, i had to fess up.

That was probably the worst experience ever. I wouldnt wish that upon anyone. However, one thing I learned from that was how much my parents really do love me. After all, I am the same boy they raised, I am the same boy thats in college studying, and I am the same boy who is still going out there and being the best person i can be. So, what difference does it make that their boy doesnt have the same feelings on relationships as they do?
