  • Need not to worry rather have some amount of courage.
    Just tell them, what is more important for your parents.. what they want to see you as.. If you happy in something won't they love it. You happiness is their wish. So, you are happy with something which they need to understand and support you.
    I hope they will understand your point. Will respect it surely.. Might take time but they will. Have faith buddy

    • Thank you so much

    • My plsr

  • Yes but understand there is a change things will go wrong however its better to live your life the way you're meant to!

    But honestly i would suggest waiting till you have a backup plan somewhere to crash or live in case the wrose x

    Be proud of who you are!

    • Thank you for the advice!

    • Good luck hopefully your parents are the best kind and will accept you for being trans and Bisexual :D x

    • I came out to my dad last month so i can understand the fear you might be feeling How i did it was on a dog walk around the local lake, you dont want them to be distracted by something but i found it easier to tell friends and family while doing a task together, careful guide the conversation towards coming out Remember they might freak out because firstly they will have preconceptions of who you are, they might deal with it real casually or not, my old man legitimately made jokes for 30 minutes afterwards but i qas okay because thats pretty normal behaviour of my dad dealing with shocking news, not exactly ideal but it was still fine If they regret you (hopefully not) and you dont have a backup plan there are organisations out there to help with that Uk has Shelter or Akt make sure you're in a safe place and if you have any reason to believe its not safe to tell a family member dont. Not alone.

  • Before you do I would suggest seeing how they feel about LBGT+ in general. Maybe have a conversation about it and depending on how they respond you can tell them about being trans. As far as being bisexual you can tell them then or wait until you want to bring home a partner to meet them.

    • Thank you that sounds like a good idea

  • They probably know you’re trans

    • How so

  • Being a parent, and having these leanings. They will probably have a good idea. The way you dress, you talk and your friends. Like my youngest daughter is lesbian, I could see the signs. When my second wife came along she could see it as well. She was in her early 20s, when she told us , there with her girlfriend.. We both said that's a relief...

    • How do you think they may react?

    • I like your update. Happy they are ok with it...

    • Thank you. I am too

  • I would

    • How is the question

    • Just tell them

    • Ok I will

  • I find it pretty odd how there’s a lack of unaccepting people posting comments here (unless that somehow happens as I’m typing this lol). The lack of these people here is welcome, though. I can’t really come up with advice for you though, but I’ll say I hope it goes nicely :)

    • Thank you
