My favorite coming-out story

My friend Andrew was worried about coming out to his parents because of their strict Roman Catholic beliefs. He rehearsed various ways of telling them with me, but didn't feel comfortable with any of them and kept putting it off.

During his senior year in college he got a boyfriend and decided that it was time to tell the parents. He went home over Thanksgiving break and told them this--

Mom, Dad...I've met someone very special and I'm in love. I want to introduce you, but I'm worried you may not be happy. This is hard but I just have to say it...he's not Catholic.

Mom and Dad, according to Andrew, took it far better than he'd imagined.

1. I am an older gay man and was deeply closeted as a teenager and in my 20s.


No religious problem. I was among mostly enlightened people but it was considered seriously abnormal back then.

I even chased women as an attempted self "cure".

When I finally came out, I was very surprised how many people already knew it.
