    At 43 years of age, I am proud to say that I finally came out to my Mom and Dad. They were surprisingly supportive about it.

    ... and to think... I hesitated.

    That must've been a relief! I told my parents when I was 15, and even by then it already felt like a secret I'd kept forever. Congratulations. icon_smile.gif

    Congratulations, yo_mamaliicon_exclaim.gificon_razz.gif

    For most people, that is the most difficult people to tell. After you are out to the people you have known for a lifetime or for years, it gets easier as coming out is no longer about making an announcement, but just living your life as the person you are- the way heterosexuals do.

    Still in the process of coming out to a few select people (like my dad). Getting ready to do it sooner or later.

    Thank you everybody... I'm slow to the table, but I'm here :-)

    Truth be told, I am pretty much out to everybody except family... We're not as close as other family units, but me, Mom and Dad are getting closer now especially since we live close to each other,
