Coming out goes on forever

  1. Coming out is hard.
  2. Not because you're scared of what friends or family will think, but because coming out is an ongoing thing.
  3. It's something you have to explain about yourself for the rest of your life.
  4. An example.
  5. "Having your wisdom teeth pulled is major surgery. Can your wife pick you up afterwards?"
  6. "I don't have a wife. I'm gay."
  7. "Oh. Ok."
  8. And so on.
  9. Forever.
  10. It's the same if you're a gay Dad.
  11. "Do you have kids?"
  12. "Yes. A son"
  13. "Bring him and your wife over for dinner."
  14. "Well, he actually lives in Amsterdam with two beautiful lesbian friends of mine who raise him. I was a donor. But I am Dad."
  15. "Oh. Ok."
  16. And so on.
  17. Forever.
  18. It's not a problem.
  19. You just need to be ready for it to go on.
  20. Forever.
