Coming Out of the Closet


Um, Grandma, I'm gay.
Um, Grandma, I'm a lesbian.
Um, Grandma, I'm in love with a woman.
Um, Grandma, do you have any idea what I'm about to tell you?
Decisions, decisions. How am I going to announce it this week, and when do I tell her? At the beginning, middle, or end of the trip? Maybe I should take a vote?

That's a tough one. But...you know her well, yes? Always take that into consideration before you leap.

Good luck. I hope it goes well, and that she sees the strength of your bond with J., so obvious to us blog readers. But even if it's awkward, don't give up hope. Sometimes even recalcitrant relatives come to terms in their own time.
