    I have recently decided to tell my parents more about myself but I am not sure how to go about this. Any advice would be much appreciated.

    Not homosexual, but my guess is play it casual? That's how I bring up everything with my parents. Its what I did when I blew my face off by exploding a barbecue by accident.

    What is your first instinct about how they will react? That's probably key in how you should go about it.

    It also depends on what type of people your parents are... How conservative they are, etc.

    What helped me was letting my father know that I had something I had to talk to him about, and that I needed for him to really listen to what I had to say and allow me to say it before he said anything. I let him know that I was afraid that he may react negatively as it is a very stressful thing to talk about but I had to tell him. It was from a suggestion from my then therapist and she said that letting them know that you're expecting a hars reaction/over reaction puts them on guard NOT to react harshly or to over react. GOOD LUCK! BE STONG!
