I know this subject has been covered before, but not my specific situation. I'm 26, gay and I still live with my parents, because moving out has been more difficult than expected. How do I come out to them if we live together and if I know there will be extreme awkwardness and even hostility at me coming out? What's even worse is that my mom, dad and me never talk about or reference sex or relationships in any way. I think my mom has one friend, that I think may be gay, that she says is funny, that she drinks with every now and then, though she definately won't expect me to be gay, but my dad and brother have said gay people disgust them. How do I deal with this and also eventually start talking about gay sex and even bringing boyfriends home in the future with this difficult situation? Does anyone know how to handle this?
