Do they? My mother does, she doesn't approve though. I'm tired of hiding it from my father...though there's the chance that he'd disown me and kick me out like he did to my cousin.

Mine do.

Way I see it is why hide who you are from anyone. Either your living your life, or living a life someone else wants you to live.
And if they kick you out, well....your at least free to be who you really are without hiding it. And be happy
The losers will be them who lose their son

I have the same fear of being disowned. It's more paranoia in my case and they haven't actually kicked anyone out for that, simply because there hasn't been an instance in which someone came out to my stepdad and his parents. The only one in the household that knows I'm MtF trans and bisexual is my mom. Outside of the household, all of my family knows, and they are perfectly fine with it. They live in another state though, which is unfortunate. Also my facebook friends know. A lot of them were pretty cool about it, the rest simply didn't comment, probably because they didn't see it.

I came out to mum and it was probably one of the most emotionally challenging things I've done in my entire life. I think she's ok with it, but I'd like her to want to know more about me (like read about bisexuality, etc).

I'm sorry about your parents. I think it's really important to have a great support group of friends around you (who you trust and love). Hope this helps!

No, but if they found out somehow, you're all invited to my funeral (and wear blue).

My mom has kinda this silent acceptance. I don't thing she likes me being like this, but she knows that I can't help it. Which is good.

I already come to my best friend and that was easy but when it come to my mother it was so hard to tell her, i want to tell her but im afraid that she will tell my whole family.

I told my mom a few months ago. She didn't mind. My mom told my aunt and grandma, and they didn't mind. And my sister snooped on my mom and grandma, and she didn't mind, so I live in a house where my whole friggin' fam knows.

I've come out to my friends and my older sister but thats about it. I can't bare to talk about this with my parents. I don't know why, I just can't muster up the courage to do so.

Everyone knows except my grandparents. My ex boyfriend was practically a member of the family. My parents and siblings are very accepting.

My grandparents, however, are harder for me to read. I don't want to risk it, particularly since I am considering the possibility of moving in with them. I'll probably try to slyly gather their opinions on topics first (like their stance on gay marriage, immigration, etc) before I make a decision to come out.

yes my parents know I'm bi and were extremely accepting of me. I am super thankful and lucky to have the parents I do

all my family knows I am bi and they know my bf and his family we are all friends. Like Seth, I am super grateful for an accepting family. My parents and brother went to gay pride events with me last summer.

My parent's don't know yet, but the plan is to tell them this summer, it's actually my new year's resolution to tell them before the year ends. I'm just tired of living a life that isn't according to my own rules. And I don't fear that I'll get disowned, but the way I look at it, if they are willing to kick their own son to the street because of something he doesn't have any control over and beacuse it's different, then they were shitty parents that I don't need in my life. Of course it's MUCH easier said than done, but if they take it poorly, pardon my french; FUCK EM'

yes my mom knows. maybe i should say i did stuff with a girl before i started with boys... and mom caught me and my best friend more than once while i was still a virgin. but we have always been open with each other plus she is bisexual herself, so its not a big deal at all!

What were you and your bestie doing when mom caught you?

My parents know and have known since I was a kid, but they waited until I came out to them. They have been very supportive of me and my sexuality and like me, they dont understand how a parent could disown or reject their own child for being who they are. Good luck with your dad.

thats almost like me! my mom knows and caught me with my best friend(s) doing things a couple times. We finally had a talk and she said its ok to experiment and if i said i was bi or lesbian thats ok with her and my dad. I'm pretty lucky that my parents are so accepting! i know it'd be so hard and I feel real bad for everybody who can't come out or where it wont be ok.

I actually came out earlier this year to everyone on facebook. Anyone who cares about me knows.

My Dad isn't around but my mother knows. She said she knew before I did. She took it awesomely, but I know I'm the exception and not the rule. Our family is very accepting. But again, I know this is generally abnormal and all those who have closed minded parents have my sympathy.

No they don't and if I didn't have the noisest friends that planet earth have ever seen they don't deserve to know to. I'd want this to be my dirty little secret.

They do. It was a little rough at first but they came around fairly quickly. Sometimes I think they like my girlfriend more than they like me.

My parents know I am bi, my whole family knows, my friends know. It is no problem al all. My parents talked to me about it and suggested that I am bi earlier than I knew the word and the meaning of it, haha. I have the best parents in the world!!

Yep. Hell, my whole family knows, but thankfully they don't care. I think having my mother's brother, who is mid 40s, come out as transgender randomly made it easier for them to accept me lol.

My whole family knows they are okay with for the most part or at least indifferent about it.

My Dad always knew, even before I realised my sexuality and it was him to explain it to the rest of the family when I was still a kid.

Being open and honest about those things with family and other people who are important is essential for me since I don't want to live a lie or double life.

I never "came out" i just act like myself and if someone asks if I'm bi then I tell them I am. So I have no idea if my parents know, nor do I really care.

I hope your parents can find it within themselves to fully accept you.

I know they would be more than accepting, but I just don't see why that would matter in our relationship (aka why I would tell them), I'm not that close to them. I guess that has something to do with it.

yes - the same to me - had no "come out" but my friends knows, maybe my parents too ;):)

My parents know, but they won't accept it for what it is. They think it's horrible, and I haven't been to church enough. I know who I am. They are OK with me having an "attraction" to the same sex, but I still (not to them) identify as bisexual.
