As I said in my profile, I’m a writer. I exhibit at various shows in my area with my self-published poetry zines. I live in Massachusetts and my parents live in Pennsylvania, still where I grew up.
I’m out as bi to them so that’s not the issue. But I’ve never really worked or exhibited at a queer event in their area. I’m afraid my mom will freak out at the idea of someone she knows knowing THAT.
But it’s really important to me to go to the event and I don’t want to lie and not tell her I’m coming home, as I do it so rarely and I’ll save money if I stay with them. I do have other options in case they have issues, though.
How do I say this?
