What is the best way to come out? One girl had a fantastic idea by saying it with cake.
Laurel, who posted the picture on her Tumblr, came out to her parents by leaving a cake saying ‘I’m gay’ and a letter on the kitchen table.
The letter said: ‘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 of 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.
And what happened?
‘My mom saw it and cried of happiness,’ Laurel said. ‘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!’
