Why would you even think about it? Don't do it. Keep your parents at arms length and slowly have them pushed out of your life. It sounds hard but it works. Eventually, they will come up and ask why you're so distant. Then tell them. Give them the option of being in your life and you in theirs or go your separate ways.
Save a ton of hurt and emotional scars that could come.

If you live under their roof. Don't do it. Start preparing for your own life and get on your feet first.
If your not? Then fire away. If they really love you? It will show, if not. You will be stronger and better for it and not wasting time and effort on people who were false.

My vote goes for not telling them yet. Specially if you are very close to them right now. You need to build a strong life first, so that in case something goes wrong, your main source of support and happiness is left unaffected (ie, people other than your parents)

Also, what kind of homophobes are they? Religious ones? just plain homophobes?

i'm at same situation like you are, i can't come out yet cause i'm not financially stable yet.. if you are independent financially then i suggest you can tell them, but don't expect anything.

I would 100% wait until you no longer live with them and don't depend on them financially. Don't jeopardise your safety and livelihood. You should absolutely live your authentic truth, but try to get out of that house asap and then come out when you're safe.

This is a late late answer(lol) but for future visitor:

If you want to come out to your parents you really need to be fully prepare for the worst. Make sure you can sustain yourself, get a job, a place to life(preferably somewhere a far from your parents), some savings, etc. This way when they(God forbid) disown you, you can take care of yourself.

Coming out can be a bitch when they won't accept you, but it will set you free.
I wish you good luck mate

If they are just a bit homophobic be distant, sad, make them know that you feel bad about something, play with their feelings to make them more receptive and comprensive about coming out, if they truly love you they will change


but if they are a f*ckin pair of bigots who go to mannifestations against LGTB+ people... Wait until you have your own house/department and job. Then kick them of your life as soon as possible

Me too bro. I am 21 and both my parents don't know I'm gay. I guess moving would also be an option, then you don't have to face the drama.
