Today, for my 18th birthday dinner I asked to go to a specific Chinese restaurant downtown. My dad looked up the address and said, "Oh no, this place is in the gay part of town!" I just told him that the food is good, but I'm gay and my dad doesn't know it yet. But I intend to tell him tonight. MMT

Good luck! *hugs*

seriously, best wishes. stay strong.

PFLAG uses the beautifully thought-provoking line, "Be careful who you hate; it may be someone you love." All the best to you, PF.

Good luck!

Oh, good luck PF! We'd like to know how it goes... to offer support if you need it and congratulations if you don't! I sure hope your father doesn't react badly :(

Okay there is something weird about this. I am 97% sure I submitted this a long time ago and it is just now on the front page. But that's not the weird part. The weird part is this MMT is not the exact thing I posted. Someone added the "I just told him that the food is good" and "But I intend to tell him tonight" parts. This is almost certainly my MMT because it shares uncanny similarities to my experience and corresponds to what I submitted months ago. Yet these additions are simply not true. I wonder how many other MMTs have been edited... :/

It doesn't surprise me these get fixed and edited. Most of these sound exactly the same. Did you ever tell him shu?

No I didn't. I never intended to tell him in the first place, that last sentence was added :/ As for the reason why... well my dad is pretty conservative and not in favor gay people by any means. I'm going to wait a long time before I tell him. Another thing he doesn't know is how I've had a boyfriend for over six months now ;)

The original sounds so much more powerful. You should tell him eventually. Look at Cheney saying freedom means freedom for everyone about his lesbian daughter. Lots of conservatives come around when they realize what gay actually is. You're not a child molestor but his son.

Maybe this situation happened to someone else, Chinese food in a gay part of town and all :D

Good luck! My mother is like that as well, very traditional person. She doesn't like it, so she chooses to ignore it and hopes one day I'll turn straight. Yeah, right.

PF, I hope that your father loves you enough to see your truth. Shu, your inspirational, I wish that your exact submission could have been front paged, you are truly brave and you inspire me :). syfox, I hope you know that there are so many people in the world who support you, I;m sure your mother will accept you soon enough. I love all of you, cause You Rock!

I hope everything worked out!

Best of luck! Hope everything went well and rememeber we all support you!! :D
