A few years Shebeen. I didn't go home for a year of it.

Its the old adage. Time heals and the more you talk to them about it the more they understand.

Perhaps they have just had a few weeks to question it even more and with you not at home to reassure them that you are ok, their imaginations are running away with themselves!

Are there problems?

Sheebs - In the long run, if they can see you are Happy and at ease with yourself it will put their minds at rest.

Reassure them that you've never been happier and your even happier now that they know because you finally free to be who you want to be.

Everyone keeps saying it takes time and i know it does but its just so hard when you feel like you are doing something wrong because of their reaction. I hope they come around

well who says your gf cant come back to your house? if shes not welcome then maybe you should tell your parents that you'd prefer to spend your bday with your gf..

Yeah exactly, why do you have to go home for your birthday? If they can't accept you and you feel uncomfortable at home then surely you don't want to be there.

I have experience of this Shebeen. I was living in the UK when I came out. My girlfriend at the time wasn't allowed visit my home in Ireland. I told my folks I wouldn't come home unless they copped on to themselves. It took a year but they soon realised I was serious.
