As your parents, they will love you no matter what. Of course you can have some rough times.. but they will always love you for who you are. I would start it gradually slope into your feminine side before you reveal your sexual identity as they may be confused if you have been "acting straight". Just act calmly and don't make too much of a deal out of it. If they are upset by your sexuality deep inside you will know that what you have done is right as nobody can stay in the closet forever. Afterwards you will feel more confident with youself, knowing that you are honest to the world.
And I understand your anxiety with your grandma being homophobic, as my dad WAS homophobic. However, once I came out to him he treated me with more respect.
Good luck if you decide to come out, I wish the best for you. :gay:

Presumptuous shit based on subjective experience. Not all families are unconditionally loving of their children. There wouldn't be a need for forums like these if the world was as it is through your rose-tinted glasses.

Your family is homophobic and clearly trying to enforce heterosexism onto you. Coming out would probably be a stupid idea in your situation, unless you have a plan b in-case the shit hits the fan. E.g., staying at a relative's house or being self-supportive.

I suppose in some cases, but that's just my opinion. I enjoy wives tales :keke:

OK so it sounds like if you tell them they're likely to flip out. It seems like a good idea to wait until you have a backup plan or are self-dependent before you come out. Everybody's circumstances are different, and you shouldn't feel pressured to come out until you feel it's in your (and your boyfriend's) best interest. You could consider letting a bit of your feminine side out at home just to judge their reactions, then from there you can decide whether to tell them. Just don't walk in in drag and vomit rainbows everywhere.

It's unfortunate, but sometimes there won't be any way you'll be able to reach your family. Having a backup plan is very important though... If you feel like you could stay with your boyfriend or another relative for a while, that'll help things quite a bit.

If you've been hiding things with your BF for this long, it might not be a bad idea to continue waiting for a little longer. How old are you and your BF?

That's fantastic that you found someone already :3 Is he out of the closet with his family?

As unfortunate as it sounds, it's probably best just to remain under the radar for a little while longer. Dropping a hint here or there might be a good idea, but otherwise it's likely best to remain closeted for now... After all, you don't want to be kicked out of the house.

Hope things improve soon! :hug:
