Hi Tim,

I'm gay and I am out (and proud) to everyone except my family. I do not think that they will react in a way that brings me danger or kicking me out. But I know that they will become very uncomfortable around me for a very long time. My family has been through some rough stuff together and I feel like we are finally in a good place. I don't want to be the one to mess up the dynamic. I hate being looked at by them as an other. I just want to be a daughter.

Sincerely,



Currently Closeted
