I was wondering if y'all or anyone else had advice about coming out to a parent as bisexual?😊 I wanted to come out to my dad as bisexual for bi week since i was gonna do it anyway id figure this week is great lmao
I’m thinking about coming out Officially on bi visibility day, but I’m one of those people that took a really long time to accept the label. I’ve been slowly telling people close to me for the last year or so, which has gone pretty well (including a girl I might’ve once dated, but she was uncertain then too and now also identifies as bi). My biggest hesitation is that now, I’m married (my husband knows) and in my late twenties and I’m worried no one will believe me. Any advice or reassurance?
I know this is a bit late but here it is for you guys!
Unfortunately, I have not come out to my parents and a lot of my relatives so I don’t have any personal experience with it. My parents are fairly homophobic and I try to keep things as easy, breezy with them as possible since we live fairly close geographically. That being said, I’m moving very soon and plan on coming out to them before I do so I’ve been trying to do a bit of research into how to go about it (because I’m a giant nerd and need to control how everything happens).
The Bisexual Resource Center is a great place to start. They have a lot of anecdotes and tools for you to use in the process of coming out. One that I’ve been looking at can actually be found on their tumblr here. It helps you examine why you want to come out to someone and how to handle different situations. It also gives your family or friends resources to learn about things on their own after the conversation is over.
Good luck, and I hope it all goes well!
