This here is my coming out story. I was very fortunate to have family that accepted me for being gay.
To all those individuals who are scared and do not want to come out for their families, let me tell you I was in your shoes. I was so afraid to come out and be judged and not be accepted by my family. All that time I was scared. My parents knew all along I was gay and accepted me. They were just waiting for me to come out. I took me until I was 28 years old to come out of the closet.
I can certainly tell you that it does get better.
