Before I came out, my father said that he would have a problem with having a gay child.

If he hadn't of made so many mistakes with his divorce from my mom, I don't think I would have EVER come out. I blurted it out at dinner one night and he didn't hesitate in his love for me. It gave me the strength to eventually come out to my mom. (which also went fine).

That story made me cry. Thank you for posting it.

I'm glad your dad was smart enough to know better than do anything but show he loved you, though! Good Dad!
