my mom is usually cool with gay people. she's cool with my gay friends and it's never really awkward when we talk about them. she is all for gay marriage and stuff like that.

sometimes i just really want to tell her, but then she'll go and say something that would totally throw me off. like this summer we were talking about something and were having a great time (this doesn't usually happen. we rarely have actual conversations). and i said "so, my friends are planning a trip to the city for the pride parade." and she said "well that's cool...THEY can go".

that kinda caught me off-guard a bit.

do you think i should take the chance to tell my mom i'm bisexual? or should i just wait?

Really, your judgment is the most important here. If she seems open to the idea of homosexuality/bisexuality most of the time, chances are you're reading too much into what she said those few times.

Your mom sounds like a safe person to tell, especially if you have a good relationship with her.
