What happens if I was forced to come out to my parents
Sometimes our ability to come out at our own pace is circumvente by circumstances beyond our conrol. WE just got a letter from you about coming out. SO, all of the resources you received, PFLAG and TREVORSPACE, will come in handy right away. Have your parents found out about your sexuality yet? Or, are you afraid they may be told soon? EIther way, you cannot contain the news. So, this is a good time to contact PFLAG to get some advise about creating understanding between LGBT people and their friends and family. Of course, if you need someone to listen, you can always call the Trevor lifeline at 1-866-4-U-Trevor, 24 hours 7 days a week. WE are here when you need us. TRy not to get into any confronttions. TEmpers may flare. Or, there may be an uncomfortable silence. Remember, you are not alone. Shawneka, there is nothing wrong with you or your sexuality. YOu are attracted to toher girls. There is nothing shameful about that. Perhaps, with a bit of education, your parents will learn to accept you and your sexuality. In time they will realize you are the same daughter. THis is just a new piece of information. In the meantime, take care of yourself. DO NOT HESITATE to reach out for support. Remember, we are a phone call away. Best wishes....
