Out of one closet, into another …
I came out to my parents when I was 16 years old, but it wasn’t until 10 years later that I worked up enough courage to come out as an atheist. I knew that their god would be more forgiving of my homosexuality than my complete belief in ‘Him’ or ‘His’ son, Jesus.
I came out of both around the same time. I think that I came out as atheist first though.
