When I was one, my mum and my dad split up. So I go to my dad’s side of the family every weekend, or every other weekend. But my dad’s side of the family is actually Muslim and I haven’t come out to them, because of that, because as you know, it’s generally true they tend to be a bit more kind of homophobic, I guess, and not as accepting certainly.
And so, I’ve come out to my mum’s side of the family and they’ve been very accepting of me, they’re just English and all that.
So, that’s been OK, but I’ve been kind of waiting until I’m independent from my dad’s side of the family before I tell them or anything, because of that.
If my dad’s side of the family, in the worst case scenario, were to find out and disown me, which theoretically could happen, I don’t think it would, but it could theoretically happen. I would still kind of be safe, because I would be with my mum’s side of the family. Although it wouldn’t be ideal, obviously, but yeah I do kind of worry about it sometimes. But not too much.
