Not Coming Out Can Make Your Parents Upset

Our photojournalist interviews his boyfriend on his coming out story, his experience living in Fresno, California, and his general thoughts on the future of the LGBT community.

When I came out to my family, I came out to my mom and my sisters at the same time. My mom cried, but what surprised me was the fact that she didn’t cry because I was gay or, because she thought that I was going to go to hell for being gay...she actually cried because she was upset that it took me so long to come out to her. She was upset that I waited until I was already 21 and out already out on my own. I guess she would have wanted to know when I was younger.
