    I applaud your decision to live your life openly and honestly. I also know firsthand how hard it can be to tell your family that you're gay. So as you take that next big step, here are some things to keep in mind.

    Before you share with your family and friends, you may want to test the waters a bit. Steer the conversation toward topics of tolerance and equality for same-sex couples. Find out how your father feels about these kinds of issues.

    It's probably taken you a while to come to terms with your sexuality, so just remember that it may take others some time to accept that also. Be prepared to be patient. It's perfectly normal for even the most accepting parents to be a little shocked by such a big revelation. Be prepared for some tough questions -- "How do you know this isn't just a phase?" "What makes you think that you're gay?"

    To prepare, it may be helpful to visit website like the the American Psychological Association (http://www.apa.org/topics/orientation.html) or the Human Rights Campaign (http://www.hrc.org/Template.cfm?Section=Coming_Out... It may also be helpful to direct your parents to supportive groups like Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG, http://www.pflag.org/)

    A father's love is unconditional. So even if it may take some time and some awkward conversations, chances are excellent that your father will accept you for who you are.
