such a sad story :(

I'm lucky to have a very loving and supportive family. Even though they both live very busy lives (they are a lawyer and pediatric surgeon), they have always provided me and my siblings with the best education and support any son or daughter could ever want.

I came out to my friends when I was a Sophomore and my family when I was a Senior in High School. It was an awkward moment, but it was my father who made it easy for me to do it. It all started when I wanted to take my boyfriend at the time out to Malibu, CA for a long weekend with some friends and asked my parents for permission. They asked who was coming and when I said my boyfriends name Christian, my dad raised an eyebrow. He knew this boy had been coming around a lot and we've spent a lot of time together so he bluntly asked "Is he your boyfriend?" I was shocked. He saw the look on my face and just laughed and said "Son, it's ok. Me and your mother suspected this a long time ago and we both still love you and are proud of you. Go have fun." Then later on that evening he told my mother and after dinner she called me into her study to give me a long lecture on safe sex, STD's, etc.

All throughout my life, they have never pressured me to do something I didn't want to do and have supported me in every endeavor.

I'm now 26 now, and still try to call them every other weekend.
