Title: Coming out to family
Post by: Jimjam on December 03, 2018, 07:53:30 am
Hi
I unfortunately don’t speak any Indonesian or Malay but I have family in Malaysia and was wondering if any of you are out to your families, how they took it, and tips on how I can come out to my aunts, uncles, cousins and their kids in Malaysia.


I am out to my mum who is Chinese-Malay but I’m pretty sure she thinks that being trans is a “western thing” and she is the youngest of her siblings just to give an idea of the generation we’re dealing with

I hope even if I don’t get help that this will help all of you.

I'm out to my family but I think they are still in the "what else can they do" or "I don't care anymore" stage. In the beginning they got really2 angry. I haven't been back home ever since, nor talk often with them.
