Coming Out at Christmas
When I came out (albeit, under duress) to my parents, it was a Christmastime. It was not my choice, and I would have either chosen a better time or never told them at all. I can’t say that coming out at Christmas is the best time, but it is up to you. There is always drama to coming out, even if your family is very accepting, it is still dramatic to you. If you are going home to spend time with your family, or seeing family you don’t see often, then the holidays are full of drama as well. Needless to say, that Christmas 6 years ago today when my parents found out I was gay was dramatic.
