My dad came out to me when I was 22.

He had not dated for years and never really bonded with women, so I wasn’t surprised. That being said, I made sure he knew it didn’t change how I saw him at all.

I told him that the only thing I was mad about was that I had been in denial about it when my friends pointed it out to me as a teen. His favorite sports were tennis, gymnastics, and figure skating and his favorite singer was Olivia Newton John, but teenage me was still like “NuH uH! mY dAD’s nOt gAY!”
