slimnoodlez saidHow was it. Did they respond well. I haven't done that yet even though I am out to like all my friends and even my brother. My parents are quite conservative, and I doubt they will take it well. Share yours.
I came out to my brothers first, and they all took it really well. I came out to my parents later, telling my mom first. I had been suffering depression for a few years, and I think struggling with my sexuality was a large part of it. My parents were both pretty moderate conservatives, and took it really well. They told me I was still their son and they loved me no matter what: eventually, I was able to come out at my Catholic high school, and didn't have any problems. That was when I was 17. It really helped to be able to tell my parents: I hadn't realized how much I had placed in their acceptance until I heard their response. It was a big weight off my shoulders.
I would suggest letting your friends and brother know of what you are doing beforehand. It's useful to let people know where you are personally, and to have people ready to support you. With that said, best of luck my friend.
