Woke up this morning to a lovely text chain in my family’s group chat:
My family doesn’t know anything about my sexuality and after seeing this text, I definitely am going to keep it that way.
I always knew my parents wouldn’t be accepting if their kids were queer, but I’ve always assumed that after some time, they’d swallow the “bad news” and keep going, because what else can they really do? I definitely was not expecting violence + conversion therapy.
I was looking forward to going home for winter break but now have more mixed feelings. Hopefully, they won’t find out and nothing will happen. 1 week left!!
