To Dad, With Love

I finally did it. The earth opened up briefly while I said, and repeated the words "I am gay." I braced myself for his response as he calmly replied, "Do you know how long I have been waiting for this day to come? I'm glad you can now relieve yourself of the burden."

"How could you ever have expected that something so insignificant could come between us," he asked. "I love you, and nothing will ever change that," he continued. I had to ask him if he was listening to himself, because he seemed to have been reading from a manuscript which detailed all the right things to say to a son after he comes-out. He asked how my siblings had reacted, and demanded that I tell him if any of them has been teasing me so that he may give them a little talk. Unbelievable, right? Thankfully, all my siblings have been extremely supportive, listening to my stories, asking intelligent questions, and reassuring me of their love for me.

Now everyone who needs to know knows. My relationship with my family has never been stronger. I can feel it. After I spoke to daddy, I called one of my brothers and shared with him what had transpired. He was glad.

"FP, I hope you find a nice partner and settle down. And remember, always have safe sex." Wait, who abducted my father!!!


  1. really?! I just love the last part on safe sex LOL. You are so lucky, am like hmmm,(mine) he doesn't even need to know about me.

  2. Yes HH, really!
    I do feel lucky. My dad has been evolving now for quite some time. 13 years ago when he first saw two men holding hands he nearly threw a fit. Now he reads every newspaper article in sight, and is more sensitive and thoughtful. He tries to understand. It's all about what parents are exposed to... Remember, my mother's initial reaction was quite the opposite, though she came around very quickly.
    Everybody has different circumstances. A big part of why I could come out to my family is that I was sure they would still be there after the revelation. Sadly, everyone isn't quite so fortunate.

  3. I am happy that your coming out went well with your father. It is interesting that his reaction is quite opposite to your mother's.
