Best Way to Come Out to Your Parents?

... this way.

Coming out to your parents isn't usually easy, but Tumblr user ellende-generes (real name: Laurel) did her best to make the conversation a piece of cake. Actually, make that a whole cake.

Fifteen-year-old Laurel posted a photo of a cake she made for her parents as a way of announcing that she is a lesbian. Loud and proud in bright green frosting, the cake reads, "I'm gay."

Accompanying the cake was a note:

good morning parents,

i'm gay. i've wanted to tell you for a long time. i thought doing it this way would be a piece of cake. i hope you still love me. i mean, it's hard not to love someone who baked you a cake.

all my friends know and still love me. your acceptance would be the icing on the cake.

i hope you, much like this cake, are not in tiers.

i hope we can look back on this and say "boy, this one really takes the cake."

it gets batter.

love, laurel (sorry for so many puns)

The coming-out cake did the job. Laurel posted an update saying, "My mom saw it and cried of happiness. We hugged and cried together. Then, we all ate the cake and talked. I am very luck to have such supporting parents and to have so much support from you guys. Thanks everyone! Have a gay day!"

Her dad was supportive, too. "My dad saw the cake and came into me room and hugged me and laughed. He said he loved me and the cake and the letter and everything was perfect. Brb crying."

My parents were fine with it regardless, but I'd have got some cake & laughs out of it.

This girl is my hero.

It also makes me feel like I came out to my parents the wrong way. How did I miss the opportunity for so many puns?!

oh non-believer, please believe me.
is there honestly nothing in this world
that keeps you living & breathing?
you're a ghost in your own
goddamn city.

I'm sure her parents wont desert her over it. This is fun.

Nous avons abrité tous les ręves du monde,
Et c'est dans le soleil que nous avons grandi.

I guess in hindsight telling my mum hysterically over the phone while 2 hundred miles away wasn't such a good idea

And the illusion of love is the only promise of defence, and even that will crumble.
