Gilkon Posted June 19, 2011 So here's my situation. I live in a family that some of them know that I am gay, however, my Dad doesn't know that I am gay. My dad is very homophobic and if he found out that I am gay, then I would most likely not have a home to come back to. I have been thinking whether or not to tell him and suffer the consequences of doing so. I have had some help a friend of the family (and that friend does know that I am gay) over the social networking site Facebook. She has told me that if I don't tell and he rather hears it from my family, then he will be even more heartbroken and hate me even more and think of me as not his son, which I think will be either case. So the question is should I come out to my dad and fight my fears, or be a wuss and hide myself back in the closet? Any help is muchly appreciated. Thank you!
