When is the right time for one to start coming out to family and whatnot?
i've been thinking that it should be sooner rather than later, I'm already twenty-four as it is.... I have been under the impression that my sexuality should remain a non-issue to others until the day comes that I am in serious enough relationship.
Does one appear stronger coming out alone or with another by their side?
The thing is, I don't want to shock anybody.
My mother will be shocked because, well... she's just an idiot.... A narcissistic twit. She doesn't understand that other people have thought processes different than her own. Mother would be okay with the news,she would just be very very very VERY annoying about it. (All this can be said about Nana as well. They are practically the same individual)
Brother would be cool, especially considering how progressive he is. He may even already kind of know, or at least have an idea... Still, he's my older brother.
Then there is my father's side of the family, but I'll get to them some other time...
