Hugging my one and only mama after coming out to her in 2015.

Mother // Perspectives //

Happy Mother’s Day ya’ll! Now I was feeling particularly festive this year and decided to start (another) series. This one is called, Perspectives and I am hoping to interview a variety of people with varied outlooks to have an open conversation to understand their point of view.

In this first episode of Perspectives, I talk to my good old mom to try to understand what it felt like after I came out to her, what she fears, and she even gives some advice to kids and parents on how to approach your gay child.

That Time I Came Out To My Mom

April 13, 2015 – I came out to my mom last night. Moments before my little brother snapped this picture, my mom said, “I’m not disappointed in you”, she began to cry. “I understand this is who you are. I’m just sad that it was difficult for you to be this way. And it’s still hard.” Her words were broken between tears; she was trying to explain the best she could considering the big news. After all the hiding and secrecy her only concern was how difficult life may have been and may be for me because of who I am. I never thought I needed to hear it from her. But I did.
