13 years later, my mum told the same cousins that her son is gay.
"We knew since he was a kid," they replied. "You didn't know?"
My relationship with my mum got so much better after I came out to her.
It took her a few months to "digest the news."
But soon, she was telling all her close friends and relatives about me a year later.
