Mark0159: ‘Just came out’ Gay Coming Out Story

Wow! i don’t know where to begin. It’s been such a crazy day. I’ve been having these different moods all day. I just got done coming out to my Mom and she’s absolutely fine with me. She still loves me unconditionally. I actually tried coming out to her in 2000 but I didn’t think she would remember but she did and says that she has known since then and still loves me.I apologize if this is all over the place but my mind is still in a state of shock right now. To be honest with you all I had no plans of coming out but it just happened you know. We were having a conversation and the subject of homosexuality came up and I just asked her how she would feel about her kid’s turned out to be gay and she told me that she would still love us unconditionally. I wanted to just cry you all. I’ve held on to this secret since I was 13 and it feels strange but yet great that she knows.

She mentioned I should come out to my siblings but I just want to take it one step at a time. I will tell them one day but she also mentioned that it’s my business and no one else’e and that I should live my life for me. I’m really shocked at my Mom’s reaction. I truly did not expect this. I’m gonna come back at tell you more of what happened. I’m just working on getting my thoughts together. -these are happy tears.
