Slowly coming out

A+ A-

I've been trying my best to come out and so far I'm out to my mom's side of the family and my half-brother. I'm trying to explain to my little sister why homosexuality is normal and my little brother picked it up already. How should I come out to my dad, sister, and his side of the family? They're really homophobic .

  • That's awesome you've been taking strides to do this! Do you need to come out to the homopobic side? I would just be careful - make sure you're prepared for any backlash and have the support and resources you need (like if I woudn't do this if you're living under your baba's roof and he could flip out and kick you out). Let us know what you decide and if you need more support.

    coming out is not an obligation, especially with homophobic relatives. if you feel that you are dependent on your dad for your education/money/a place to live then wait until you are less dependent on him so if he reacts badly it won't affect your life/safety as much.
