Should I tell my mum and dad I'm gay?

A male United Kingdom age 26-29, anonymous writes:

I'm gay what's the problem with it? I want to tell my mum and dad but I know they will freak out, my parents are really homophobic, that's why the only people I let know I'm gay are the guys I date, none of my friends know because I know it will end up on facebook and my parents will see I'm going out with my best mate at the minute and have been for about a year now.

I'm really nervous to tell my mum and dad I'm gay, whenever they see gays kiss they look away and go eeeeewwwwww its not natural but my question is if they judge my sexuality and label gays as unnatural and disgusting then do they have a right to know I'm gay? My question is should I tell my mum and dad?

No way. You need to keep to the closet for now. Only when the time is right will you be able to confidently strut about the house with carefully arranged hairdo, singing your favorite Broadway show tunes and holding Bruce's hand in front of the parents.

You will know when this time comes.

Remember, life is a well choreographed musical and YOU are the star. The rest of us are just your extras. You need to upstage us and show us where to stand.

Good luck big boy and remember the old chestnut: A good man is hard to find (or was it a hard man is good to find.)
