Hi,

I am out now but I understand your plight, it took me two years to come out to my family, I would tell one sister, then another, then my father, then finally my mother. It was hard for me becuase I am not close to my family, you would think that would make it eaiser but it actually made it harder becuase I was not used to opening up to them at all. Friends were easier, alot easier, I have been out to them for years and never had many problems.

I'm out to my parents but not many other people, except the 1500 members here.

I am out to everyone who knows me apart from some extended family.

WOW just thinking there i came out just before the dicrimlising of gay sex which means I am more then 10 years out if i had remembered i could have celebrated it.

Came out to my family I think two years after i came out to friends.

One thing i noticed with myself and a good few friends is that after you come out to your folks there is often a short period where it gets talked about but very quickly it becomes this unspoaken subject and that can be quite dificult to deal with. It often doesn't come up as an issue till you move in with a boyfriend and then they have to face it again

Best of luck and the single most important thing is do things at your own pace

I came out to my parents - long before anyone else..

It was not a problem at all and they knew anyhow -

in fact I recoken most parents know - and our fear in them finding out we are gay is groundless...

The vast majority of our imports come from outside the country Pipedreams.

I haven't told my parents yet. (I'm kind of a late convert)

Not looking forward to it. I'm in no hurry.
