    Today is a great day!
    After much encouragment from my partner and cousin; I finally made that call to my folks and told them I am gay.
    My mom said she kind of knew; but seeing as I was married for over 25 years; she wasn't sure.
    She totally is behind me 100% and told me that she just wants me to be happy.
    I don't really care if anyone answers this; but I am just so fucking happy; that I can't help but shout it out.
    Thanks for this forum and thanks to so many of my friends on LPSG who have been so supportive and loving.
    Peace, Love and Happiness.

    I think that's f-in' fantastic! I know it must have taken some guts but the relief and happiness in your voice is palpable. Congratulations. You can't imagine how much easier and fuller your life and relationship with them will be now.

    As a 100% straight guy it made me feel good to read your post. :smile:

    Your happiness and relief is so evident and don't we all need to hear some good news every so often.

    :beerchug2: Congratulations on becoming a butterfly.
    A long journey from caterpillar.

    Glad your mom is with you. With that generation it is such a crap shoot.
    They could turn on you or be the coolest person you never ever thought they were capable of being. :wink: (after all - they are you parents - and it was always the other kids who had cool parents)

    What about your dad?

    I guess it proves they love you even if they have issues - if you ever had any doubts.

    Now just relax and be yourself. :151:

    Congratulations. I know from experience its not easy to do. I have friends who had extremely bad results which affected them greatly.

    I'm very happy for you and my sincere best wishes to you.

    Pitbull,
    Thank you. That is so nice that you felt that way.
    Your reaction is similar to not one, but all of my straight friends and relatives. They are just so happy to see me finally being myself.
    That's all anyone wants, the freedom to be themselves.
    Let's just hope this country remembers that, the Freedom to be.

    Looking back, I imagined all the worst scenarios and in the end, it was as if I told her about the weather. LOL
    She suprised me by her honesty and her sincere wish that I just be happy.

    D, I'm so happy for you. I know it's been a long journey. I've watched you get happier and happier over the previous months and this is evident that it just keeps getting better for you.

    Good for you, Friend. I know you've been glowing all day. How many songs did you play and jam to?
