Hey I can’t begin my transition for at least 2 years from now, I’m masc non-binary AFAB and go by he/ they pronouns. I cant tell my parents because when they just found out I was gay they avoided me for 3 days and put a app on my phone to track what I’m doing. I just need help and whenever I’ve tried to talk to them about it in the past they just ignore me and force be to be who they want me to be. It’s just a never ending loop that I’m too scared to break. If you have any advice please let me know.

      Hey, you know who you are, that is something to be proud of :) It is scary to not be supported by your fam… but the online LGBTQ+ community can be your virtual chosen family along the way :)

      My parents said they wouldn't support me when I first came out, but when they saw how much happier I was they eventually came around. Idk if your parents would let you go to therapy or if you're already going, but if you can talk to a therapist about how to communicate with them and try bringing them in for a session so that there's a moderator in the conversation. Besides that, guppysoup pretty much said it. If you have at least 2 years until you can transition, then you have at least 2 years to plan and set yourself up for success when you do get your own place

      Ah - Then I’m in the same situation right now. I would say to prioritize a couple things: 1) Figure out where you want to go. Do you want to live nearby? Do you have friends or accepting family to live near and rely on? 2) If you can, start saving up for a place (I would go for a minimum of 3x a month of rent if you can, which encompasses deposit, first month’s rent, and cheap supplies or furniture). That’s where I am starting right now! I really hope the both of us are able to find our way soon 💗

      For clarification, are you looking to move on from relying on your parents, or for a way to get them more comfortable?
