    Tonight was the night that I was finally honest with my dad about my sexuality. And boy did he take it well! I am now out to both of my parents, and can breathe a sigh of relief that they have been as supportive as I would have wanted them to be.

    Now that I've told my parents, who else could REALLY matter?? (Besides my brother, but that's coming too...) It's an awesome feeling icon_biggrin.gif

    So if all goes according to plan, I will soon be changing my dusty ol' body profile pic to a nice snapshot of my beaming smile icon_lol.gif

    I know this doesn't particularly merit any kind of speech, but I want to thank all the fellas on here who have befriended me and inspired me to be myself and be honest with me and people around me. Y'all have seriously been an influence in who I have become and how I've dealt with and accepted my sexuality.

    Cheers icon_smile.gif

    It feels good when your family accepts you for who you are.
