Happy Pride! This made me so bust out. Remembering when I came out to my folks. They were wonderful in that they told me "no matter what, we love you." They drove me nuts in that my mother then replied, "But do you have to look gay, I mean, hun, you could be so pretty."
I came out after hours of my mother baggering me about shaving my head. Gay okay, bald head, apparently a heart attack waiting to happen.
