Thanks for posting this. I have a gay friend whose father completely disowned him. Years later when the father was dying, he contacted his son. He was sad that he had missed a lifetime of knowing his son.

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 hate that you have to "come out" at all - it should be as accepted as the fact I hated pink growing up. Simply, you don't have the same taste as the majority, and that's all there is to it.

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

My dad IS a good dad. (insert overly loud sniffle)

Thanks NetG. I hate that we need to "come out" too.
