How Do I Tell My Dad Im Gay?

Having the courage to tell your parents that you are gay or lesbian can be one of the most courageous things you will ever do. You need to think carefully about how you want to approach it and what your plan is.

You should also decide if you will talk to one parent at a time first or whether you want to wait until both of them are ready to listen. Some people find that it is easier to tell one parent and then use that as a stepping stone to telling the other.

Many parents have preconceived notions about sexuality, particularly with regards to homosexuality. You may need to educate them about this. You can send them articles that explain that homosexuality is not the same as sex and that homosexuals are just as happy and fulfilling in relationships with other people as they are with heterosexuals.

Some parents are surprisingly accepting of their children’s sexuality. Other parents will need a little bit of time to adjust and some may never accept it. If you are worried that they will react negatively, it is a good idea to have a back-up plan. This could involve having friends present when you tell them, writing a letter or having a support group to call on if they become violent or abusive.

It is a very difficult situation and you need to be patient. You cannot force anyone to accept who you are, but you can show them that you love them no matter what.
