ErikTaurean saidMe and my mom were good, in fact great up until she passed away. And there was never an issue about my gayness when I told her. It was like an afterthought (she told me she didn't know) and immediately changed pronouns from that point on. I know I am in the minority with never having any family issues with being gay or really anything. There wasn't a single thing I couldn't go to my mom about and vice versa. I know I was lucky and fortunate.
Nope you are not! I also have had a wonderful relationship with my parents, from day one!! I am not hiding the fact that at first it was difficult for them to get use to having a gay son, but as any good parent they were primarily more concerned about my wellbeing and health, and rightfully so, since I came out to them in the early 80's, when AIDS and promiscuity reached its peak amongst the gay community. My sexual orientation wasn't so much a big deal as their concerns of me being exposed to sexually transmitted deseases, and all the perverts that were after my youthful looks back then.
My Dad who passed away when I was twenty five, according to my own mother always knew I was gay since my tender age of ten!! having said that after he passed away my mother took over the paternal role, of which I benefitted from a great deal, as my father played a huge role during my childhood years. I adored him and out of all my siblings I was always his favorite. My mother took a little longer to fully accept me, but that wasn't much of an issue for me because I too adored her and greatly appreciate all the morals and values she instilled in me. I love my parents very very much, and I greatly miss my Dad, as his open mindness was way ahead of the times back then!!
