I am a 13 year old kid and I am gay. I am in the closet and want to come out. I am the middle child of three with 2 sisters. My older sister says my mom is fine with it but my dad not so much. How should i come out or should I not?
For Slacker, when you are 13-years-old, you are in an identity crisis and being gay, Slacker feels like he’s being crushed under the weight of the world. He is speechless. He doesn’t know how to help ‘Unsigned’ because he grew up in a very Catholic home and can’t even imagine if he was gay, what he would be like coming out to his parents.
Slacker knows if his son Noah approached him about this he would react a lot better than his dad probably would, but he would still wig out. Steve thinks he would handle it poorly because he wouldn’t care either way although he’s not trying to be insensitive. He wouldn’t be upset if his son was gay, but he would feel bad about how other people would judge him.
Do you have any advice for ‘Unsigned?’ How should he tell his parents? Is this the perfect age for him to come out or should he not?
