Telling people about your sexuality is called coming out.

Telling people about your sexuality is called coming out. Whatever your reasons for coming out to your parents, be prepared forshock, maybe a bit of outrage, or any emotion you might not expect.

Like it or not, this may be quite a big deal for your parents at first. But hopefully they will accept and support you.

Planting ideas ahead of time could help lessen the surprise factor. It might not be possible for you to do it face to face; in which case think about writing an honest letter and allowing them time to respond. Think about whether they may already have an idea what you're about to tell them. -bbc
