How to come out to your parents

It must be quite nerve-wracking for an adolescent to tell her parents that she is gay. 15-year old Laurel decided that it would be easiest to tell her parents with a cake and an accompanying note. Neetzan Zimmerman tells us what the cake and the message were and what the response of the parents was.

As a lover of puns, I enjoyed Laurel’s approach.

    I got a strong denial. He sounded a bit harsh to me (not too surprising given his age) so I continued with:

    “Well, it’s not a big deal. You know your granddad (ie my dad) is gay, don’t you?”
    On a more relaxed tone: “Yes, I know.”
