Okay i'm 16 and I have been bi for about a year. Most of my friends know, in fact most of my school knows. The only family member that I have told is one of my cousins that I am very close with. I want to tell my partents because I want to be honest with them, but I'm not sure how they will react. I talked to my dad a little about gay's because i'm figting for gay rights at my school and he seemed to be cool with them. My mom, however, is catholic and I don't know how she would take the news. First off do you think I should tell them, and if so how do I go about doing that?

Well, i know exactly where your coming from. I have only told my good friends about the fact that i am a lesbian, and my family only has their suspicians. I will eventually tell my family, but they are also catholics and agianst gay of any sort. (i have no religion) I think you should tell your parents, they deserve to know, and i know i should practice what i preach, im working on it. Dont necessarily tell them both at once, it seems your dad would take it beter. Start with him, see how he handles it before breaking it to your mom.
------------------ The sad truth, people with lots of friends are liked the most,
but people with no friends...want to be liked the most
