Family

I have a question and I 'm wondering if anyone could help me out. I am 16 and I still have not told my family that I am lesbian. I have no idea how to go about doing it. I am wondering if anyone could help me out with any advice or personal stories. Thanks a lot.

Unfortunately, not everyone you know will think that being a lesbian is the greatest thing. It's hard to know who can handle the information and give you support. Some friends may accept you. Some may turn away from you or tell other people without your permission. Telling family can be very difficult. Some families are very supportive. But some lesbian and gay youth have been kicked out of their homes when their parents found out.

Maybe there's a guidance counselor or social worker in your school, or in a local youth or counseling agency, that you can trust. It's important to have someone to talk to because it's not normal or healthy for young people to have to keep secret such an important part of their lives.

When my 17 years old daughter told me that she was lesbian I didn't experience shock at all. I thought :" She is my child and I love her and I'll love her anyway. She hasn't changed since the moment she told me about it. She is the same person today that she was yesterday. I should help her and accept the reality.''
And I said:" If you choose that lifestyle I respect your choice and I want you know I am always ready to support you. I am still your mum."

Good for you to have accepted your daughter right away. Usually, parents will get a shock first then they will either accept their daughters or not. Some will resort to sending them to counseling or boot camps in order to remove whatever their daughter's are like it's some kind of disease. Parents should be more like you. Accepting no matter the circumstances.Kudos :)
