The road to my father's acceptance

I came out through a note to my parents before school.

It was a stressful day at school thinking they would disown me, but my step-mom told me she knew already, my dad kind of ignored it. A few weeks later, my dad and I had a long discussion and he said he accepted me, but he wouldn't stop making fun of the community.

A few weeks after that, I came out as transgender. He said it was a mental illness but he accepted me. Now my dad accepts me no matter what, and I'm thankful.
