My Dad's a Homo

By Wes J. Pimentel

My father is gay. This is the story of how I found out and the emotions I felt at the time and have felt since. I will then share some anecdotes and finish up with some light gay humor.

My parents got divorced when I was two. I have some foggy memories of us all living in the same apartment, but they’re mostly just disconnected snapshots. Pretty much everything I know about my father I’ve learned post-divorce. During my entire childhood, my brother and I would live with my mother Monday through Friday, while we went to school. We would spend every weekend with my father. He has always been a prominent figure in my life and in fact, I’ve never felt the emotional trauma commonly attributed to growing up in a “broken home.”

So it was, that on a bright sunny day, my Dad took his two sons to the beach. Normally, when you go to the beach, you might walk a little ways up or down the shore to find a good spot. On this day we hung a left at the water and walked way, way down to a remote part of the coast. I didn’t notice it at the time, but we had made our way away from all the nuclear families, who had no idea how the ensuing drama would affect the rest of my life.

My father’s choice of destination didn’t pique my curiosity at the time, because he’d always been what we considered eccentric. I just kind of went with the flow, as always.

After a good while of coastal merriment, my father decided to tan himself while his two little boys played in the sand. It seemed like my father had fallen asleep. Anyway, as my brother and I occupied ourselves with the sand, we became distracted by the happenings at a beach blanket, which was relatively close to our own. There were two young men on this blanket. One was very pale, and the other was very dark black. They were both bald. One was on top of the other, and they were passionately kissing.

I was ten at the time and my brother was twelve. When confronted with a situation like this, most boys of about our ages would do exactly what we did. We immediately expressed our repulsion, saying things like, “Ew! Look at those faggots!!” and, “Ugh, that’s nasty!” We reacted this way for a few moments, until my Dad proved that he was, in fact, not asleep. He was lying on his back and without even looking to see what the two guys were doing, he picked up his head saying, “You guys shouldn’t call people names like that. You don’t even know those guys and you’re insulting them without knowing anything about them.” My brother and I were stunned. At that point in my life I had never heard a straight man defend a gay man. I was beside myself with astonishment.

From that moment, my brain started processing every piece of relevant information about my father that I had been suppressing up until that point. My father greeted all his male friends with a kiss on the cheek; he had mostly single, male friends without wives or children; he never talked about sports or cars or “screwing chicks”; His apartment was beautifully decorated; He was into fine music, art, food, and culture; he shared a one-bedroom apartment with another man. Oh… my… God. All the jokes my uncles had made, that I never got, about us having two mothers and so on, came to mind at that moment.

By the time I came out of my stupor, we were on our way back up the beach. I was holding my Dad’s hand. I looked up at him and asked, “Dad, are you gay?” To which he responded, “Yes, I am.” We walked in silence for about five minutes. Then, I asked, “Is Joseph (my Dad’s “roommate” at the time) your boyfriend?” To which he responded, “Yes, he is.” It felt like the carpet had been pulled out from under my entire life.

I don’t remember anything until we got back to his apartment. True to form, my Dad was ready for this exact situation. He sat us down on his bed and put on a video. I say true to form because as I grew up, any time I had a question about anything, rather than answer the question outright, he would present me with an article or a book or some other piece of media, directly related to the topic in question. It was annoyingly educational. Anyway, he had recorded a documentary about gay parents off the TV. It sounds cheesy, but it was exactly what I needed at the time. I needed to know I wasn’t the only kid going through this and that my father was not a freak.

Well, after I was back at my grandmother’s house with all my uncles around, and my Mom, my feelings changed. Tolerance became deep thought, which in turn became disgust, which gave way to resentment and anger. I told myself my Dad was wrong. I began formulating the speech I would use to tell him that I didn’t want him as a father. I practiced divorcing my Dad for a week until it was time to see him again. The next time we went to see him, all I was able to feel was a deep love and affection which I felt with almost no other person on earth. I never even tried to deliver that speech. In fact, I felt horrible for even considering it. My resentment and anger was redirected at all the people in my family who had made fun of him right in front of us, without telling us what the jokes meant. I felt betrayed by the people I trusted the most. I felt closer to my father than ever before.

The nineteen years since this incident have been filled with almost nothing but joy when it comes to my father. I have been truly blessed with the rare experience of having a gay parent. My Dad has always been there for us and he’s the perfect model for what a father should be after a divorce. I’ve often remarked that I wouldn’t trade him for anyone, not even a straight version of himself. The fact that he’s gay just adds too much to my life to want it any other way.

I remember once he invited me to go to “pride” with him (a gay pride parade). I agreed and made my way to his downtown apartment. He didn’t get the door, but yelled for me to come in. He was busy changing or something. Anyway, I walk in and he says, “I have something for you to wear.” I’m thinking, “Sweet!” because his taste in clothing is exceptional and even though he’s almost twice my age, his clothes are always more fashionable than mine. He says, “It’s on the couch.” I walk over, and there it is… in broad daylight; a plain, white, skin-tight, tank-top undershirt, right out of the pack. On the front of it, in ORANGE MARKER he had scrawled the phrase “I’m proud of my gay Dad.” Not centered, not neat. He was obviously suffering from some sort of heat delirium. My Dad walks up and says, “Put it on.” To which I responded, “Dad, I love you, I’m proud of you, but there’s no fuckin’ way I’m wearing that.” In his best “I’m-your-disapproving-Dad” voice he says, “Wesley!” Needless to say, I didn’t wear the damned thing.

So, there it is. I have a great father. I know a lot of people out there disagree with gay parenting on the basis of it being a poor example to children. First of all, sexuality cannot be labeled right or wrong, unless it hurts someone. As far as the “example” thing, if you haven’t noticed, sexual orientation cannot be taught. Where do you think gay people come from?

Having a gay Dad has taught me to be accepting, tolerant, flexible and broad-minded. For all you self-righteous “good Christians” who believe Jesus wants you to condemn gay people, read Matthew 9:13, or 5:10. According to Jesus Christ, when you persecute gays for the sake of righteousness, you guarantee them heaven. So, thanks.

By the way, I like to tell my father he’s from the northern coast of Faghdad. I just think that’s funny.

I'm at a loss for words. This was so brave of you. My hats off to you and to your father who did not give you any reason to think otherwise. I was blown away by your story - after reading your hubs on pizzas and idioms! LOL thanks for sharing.

btw, so far I have voted I Likeys to all your hubs! Here's looking forward to more hubs from you :D

I don't think being gay makes someone either a good or bad parent - sexuality is a separate thing. I'm sure there are crap and great gay Dads, just as there are crap and great straight Dads.

Sounds as if you got one of the good ones!

C.C. - Thanks for the comment. Here again is another hub that is 100% true. Down to the orange marker. I still mess with my Dad about that to this day. About the Jehovas... I'm not too big on organized religion in general, but if your beef with them is specifically about their marketing tactics, like LondonGirl mentioned, I'm with you. I don't think religions should use the same marketing tactics as vacuum salespeople.

I was motivated to read your Hub by 'Chris A' when he included your hub in his 50th hub celebration (yay). I am very pleased that he has. Wonderful, just awesome.

gwendymom - Seriously, thank you. I really appreciate the hublicity. I write a site called The Life Articles dot com. You'll find all of my non-hub stuff there. There's a good one there called "Transhomogendersexual," which will never be on Hub Pages. Enjoy!

Thank you. Thank you for the great writing, for sharing your story and for allowing people to see that homosexuals aren't quite the sex crazed pedophiles that the religious right would like people to believe. As a gay son I know I've been through some difficult things so I can only imagine what being a gay Dad must be like and how proud he must be to have a son like you. Congrats!

somelikeitscott - Thanks for the comment and the compliment. I'm sure my Dad is very proud of me. I'm very proud of him too. Wouldn't trade him for the world. I just checked out your gay baby name piece. It was really funny. I also just went to your site. I didn't looka rouns much, but I like the layout so far. Very inviting. I would expect nothing less from the likes of you. I have another couple of pieces that deal with gender/orientation. They are "Transhomogendersexual" and "I See Gay People!" which you can find on

Teresa - Thanks for the warm fuzzies. I wish I could Matrix-style upload tolerance and compassion to people.

Hey schwag, i really liked your story, and i relate to it since i recently found out about my father being a homosexual. Im older now so i understand it more, but i just don't know how to feel. i really don't...

Schwag profile image

Schwag 7 years ago from Clarksville, TN Author

I hear you. "Knowing how to feel" is impossible. If your Dad's a bum, regardless of sexual orientation, I really feel for you and I wish you the best in overcoming that. If your father is a good one, I say celebrate him and your relationship with him and just enjoy him. You don't have to obsess over his sexuality any more than any person with straight parents has to obsess over their's. Family first, always.

Great piece! I too am a child of a homosexual. My mother is a lesbian. I recently posted a hub about it. check it out if you like. I also had to confront my mom about it to get her to admit it to me. She had tried to keep it from me to protect me. When i was younger and starting to suspect, i went though many of the same emotions you did, and im glad i did. it has made me the person i am today. I wouldn't have it any other way. I love my mom, and her sexuality taught me that love can't be labeled.

and i congratulate you because of your behiviour which is something bravely

ur right jesus doesn't want us to hate homos or judge them or what ever,but he doesn't want us to tolerate the sin. love the person hate the sin, also in the book of hebrews and leviticus it condenms the ACTS of are some good bible verses

Lev. 18:22 , "You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it is an abomination."

Rom. 1:26-28, "For this reason God gave them over to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the natural function for that which is unnatural, 27and in the same way also the men abandoned the natural function of the woman and burned in their desire toward one another, men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in their own persons the due penalty of their error. 28And just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things which are not proper."

Lev. 20:13, "If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltness is upon them."

1 Cor. 6:9-10, "Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals,1 10nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God."

this may come out to seem that God is a mean and evil God but it is not just because God is a loving God and he must judge righteously because if he does not discipline the ones he loves then does he really love us? but he will not force himself on us there fore he gives us choices and if we choose to follow the path of sin then so be it (read Romans 6:23, 3:23) but because he loves us so he demonstrates his loves for us so that we may go to heaven by sending down his ONE and ONLY son ( read John 3:16 - 18 ) so that all can come through him romans 5:8 so that while we were still sinners christ died for us. he made it possible for us to live again. Jesus loves the people, tax collectors , prostitutes , poor , sinners , and even the gays and gentiles. he died and rose again for everyone. although i may not agree with homosexuality i still love Gays and lesbian because they are just as human as i am and deserve just as much and Christ died for them just the same. love the people hate the sin!

RoseAsaurusRex - In your profile you use the word "I" 24 times in TWO paragraphs. As a converse example, I use it less than ten, even though I describe all 35 of my hubs in my profile. These are my favorite quotes from your profile:

"[I] help others with their problems and pray for them", "i just want to change people", "that is what i thrive on, the thoughts of others when it comes to my writings"

The reason you have such a hard time connecting with people is your personality disorder. It's called Narcissistic Personality Disorder, by the way.

You might want to start "chang[ing] people" with yourself. I would recommend long-term Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I know you're just a little girl and don't know much about life, but it's never too early. Your family and friends will thank you for it. Trust me; they're already sick of hearing your poems, your violin practicing, and your never-ending confusion about and criticism of "THOSE" humans. Ever wonder why if you're such a good christian you use the word "they" so much? It's a separator. You feel removed from the rest of us suffering masses. You are special, chosen, unique. Right? Wrong. You will someday find that you are just as f#cked up as the rest of us, but by then you will have married a classic co-dependent man who will worship you and never challenge your views, reinforcing your false perception that you are somehow different from THEM.

Quick question: are the gays going to hell or not? Cor 6:9-10 says yes, but you quote Jesus who says no. Which is it? Oh, I forgot, you're not God, just his holy messenger on earth, right? Well, next time you feel a huge shaft of his grace going through you, ask him for me. I might want to buy Daddy a fire-proof speedo.

elstob - I wish I could say, "Screw them! Shout it to the world!" But I'm a realist. I too have kept my father's sexuality to myself until just the right moment. It is frequently after the person to whom I'm speaking has already made a gay joke or two. Guess what. I make gay jokes too. Because they're funny, not because I hate gays.

What you need to know about gay-haters is that people fear that which they do not understand. Fear can easily turn to hate. The fact that people bully you about it has a lot more to do with your behavior than theirs. I am a complete a-hole, and I can tell you that if someone busts a gay joke and I immediately look them in the eye and say, "My father is gay," they tend to shut right up, apologize, etc. It's hilarious. Try it sometime with someone who a) doesn't know you well and b) doesn't know your mom is lesbian. You'll be surprised. That, or they'll burn a cross in your front yard. Let me know.

you said that i have a Narcissistic Personality Disorder but this but this is not me.A narcissist is someone who cannot accept responsibility for their own mistakes. A person who can do no wrong in their own eyes. It's a person who has a false sense of entitlement and thinks they're better than anyone else and deserve more than other people do. The narcissist is incapable of apologizing or admitting wrongdoing. They have no capacity for humility, and acknowledge no one ... I may not be perfect and i know i mess up. matter of a fact i screw up everyday, i know i am not a "good person" but then who is good? and according to whose standards? the worlds? i don't follow the worlds standards. because the truth is no one is good yeah there are those few decent people that actually care about what's going on. those few decent people that have a heart and that try to change peoples lives is that me? you could say so but if you didn't know me and you only knew by what a webpage displayed then you could say not , but the thing is you don't know me and i of course don't know you. i am not good you know why because the bible says so for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God Romans 3 23 and the wages of sin is death but the gift of God is eternal life romans 6 23. i do sin. i sin everyday. i may not kill people or do drugs but i sin and a sin is a sin no matter what and the worlds smallest lie is a sin and stealing from a bank is a sin its all measured the same. GOD JUDGES but he also loves. for while we were still sinners Jesus died for us romans 5 8 and that was me. a sinner. i broke all ten commandments. maybe i didn't kill but i hated someone with all my heart. i never worshipped idols but i have payed more attention to my ipod than my bible. is that the same as worship? yah i think so. i put other things b4 my God. i was a sinner and i admited it before my God when i asked him to come into my life. when i was at the end of my rope. i am not perfect. you only see the dirt. but Jesus saves because while i was still sinning and idid not have him emotions were always flying high. yah i was a cutter, i was constantly depressed, i couldn't look at myself in the mirror sometimes with out hating what i saw. if anything i considered myself lower than the dirt. yah i was that bad. it was like i had a fight inside of me constantly raging. somedays i wanted to end it cuz it was all too much for me but one day a man reached out and told a similar story to mine and for the first time ever i found out that jesus saves. he loves the unlovables, the untouchables, the sinners, he loves me. and now everytime i see a troubled teen i see me and i have to help i have to love them. not to get praise but to do it because Jesus first loved me. maybe you don't understand this and you can insult me all you want i don't care anymore but please understand those words that you posted. those words are not me and i will not let them define me. i am for christ and i understand that now. i live because he died for me. God bless you.

I don't know your story or who you are, but ad hominem attacks on teenage girls for trying to share their faith seems a bit childish. If you have dealt with anyone this age you would know that yes, they will talk about themselves, and no, they won't know as much as you do about life. So please, excuse my little sister if she offended you by talking about herself on HER own hubpage, in a section about HERSELF. And next time you post something and someone says something you don't like, why don't you tear apart the message that was stated, not the person who stated it. This seems like a rather silly matter to be having heated discussion about, especially in light of who you are talking to. Sorry that someone tried to share their beliefs with you, maybe you should warn others you're going to be intolerant of personal beliefs.

And seriusly, the innuendos you used in your post were offensive.

I'm sorry if your dad being gay has had any adverse effect on you, maybe you should truly address your feelings about it before posting a blog about it.

Oh an I talked about myself less than ten times, if you count this line, so hopefully you don't think I'm being too narcissitic for your tastes.

The sisters - I write here to interact with adults. I write about adult topics. I don't give a shit about interacting with kids, except my own. Next time either of you feel ballsy enough to comment on some man's writing, be prepared to interact with someone other than Barney. I make no pretenses of being nice, cordial, polite, socially acceptable or appropriate. I am an asshole. A huge, prickish dickhead.

Never let intelligence fool you. You can't learn your way out of a bad personality. My intellect does nothing for my interpersonal life, as evidenced by my comments. The older sister will eventually learn that. She's obviously the brains. The younger one is textbook Cluster B (DSM IV), ADEQUACY-OBSESSED. Please reply as I'm low on entertainment these days.

sorry i have no older sister just an older brother with more brains than you. first of all your just mad because he prooved a point. you say you write here to interact with adults than why can't you act like one instead of acting haughty. next time you write a hub place a warning stating

"sorry i only interact with adults that act as juviniall as me- please i might insult you with my arrogance and stupidity"

and its fine i kind of got that feel that first few comments you wrote. as my brother said before i don't know you and i don't wish to know you and sorry if i even cared enough to share my beleifs with you.

and don't worry i'm not as young as you may think i'm older than that. and i do interact with adults, just adults with more integrity, politeness and brains than you. haha. c'mon now don't stoop down that low to the point your only entertainment is to attack younger audiences than you. you may not give a ---- about me or my brother but listen closely there's a man up there named jesus who would give his life for you (gasp) that's right and he could care less about outward appearences all he wants is YOU. pretty amazing huh. he doesn't want the guy on the outside. the one who has to act a certain way to get the world's approval, the man who has to hate to feel good. no he wants the man that deep down inside is suffering. matter of fact he wants to hold that man and tell that man. everything is gonna be alright you don't have to run anymore, you don't have to suffer anymore, you don't have to hide, to pretend. the man he wants is you. when i see your hubs i think to myself wow this guys full of it. when Jesus reads your heart he sees this.

another child suffering, dieng inside, chained to this world, caking himself with hate and anger and pain. wearing a cloak of hate and anger, putting down others to fill the large void inside his heart. he sees that but i don't and know one else does. but him.

sir, i don't know you and if i or my brother offended you in any way because of our youth or just because we dared to comment on your precious hubpage than i am sorry. i really don't care what you have to say because its worthless trying to see eye to eye with you because i already got that notion from you but i have you know that i came here on this website to express myself and to share my views and to interact with other people. you and i came from two very different worlds and because of the generation i have grown up in i probably have seen more ugly than you or maybe not i don't know oyur story. it was nice commiting (or maybe not) haha well any way thanks and by.

Twisted Sisters - Playtime is over. I'm done entertaining the kiddies. The moral of the story is that as much as God loves us, there are still some of us who are big jerks. I'm one of them. Now, go to bed. You've got a big day of school tomorrow.

tugbo200-5 - Thanks for the comment. I like your avatar. It says a lot.

What a great hub, thanks for sharing it. I wish everyone could be as open minded and nonjudgemental as you.

Randy - Thanks for the comment. I like your alter ego. It's very... well, randy. I am not, nonjudgemental, though. I judge all with an iron gavel. Luckily I do not escape my own hypercriticism, so my integrity remains intact most of the time.

Awesome, awesome hub! It was so beautiful ! :) Hopefully when I have children they will be as loving and accepting of having two mothers as you were to your father.

Haha, imma try that next time and see what they do.

atlovesbm- if they are your kids, they will no matter what, if you are fat, if you are poor, if you are lesbian, they are your kids and they will love their mummies the same as they would love a mother and/or a father (probably more because you are different from others, therefor have a stronger connection)

Cuckholddon - thanks for the comment. I agree. What this world needs is a lot more ME. Just kidding. I really believe in letting people do what the hell they want.

RoseAsaurusRex - Would you follow the scripted word found in -- Deuteronomy 21:18-21 -- If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son, which will not obey the voice of his father, or the voice of his mother, and that, when they have chastened him, will not hearken unto them: Then shall his father and his mother lay hold on him, and bring him out unto the elders of his city, and unto the gate of his place; And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard. And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.

Schwag - I envy your relationship with your dad. I can only hope to have the same conviction, when I tell my own kids. A true son who loves his father, no matter what.

Yeah yeah 2 years ago

he gave his only begotten son... ok...

So hes God, right he set everything up to be the way it is. So just to summerize.

I am god.

I want you to love me of your own free will.

I gave you the gift of free will and you have the that power and responsibility to decide right from wrong.

Love me of your own free will because I am


we all on the same page?

ok so now follow my commands because I am God and if you don't follow my commands, using your own free will then that mean you don't love me. When you die I will judge you and cast you into hell.

So give me your lunch money or I am going to beat you up .... Any time someone ( be it God or a bully) tells you to do something under the threat of harm that is called Extortion.

Anytime someone says I gave this for you, Or I did this for you.. its the set up for a guilt trip. Pay attention Catholics... I did not ask to be born. I did not ask to be created.

Ohhh blasphemy and I never asked to be gay.

But here I am... now he is the Alpha and the Omega... knows it all has absolute power...

So why did he set it up that he Had to send us his son?

Total wisdom and knowledge and a bad guilt trip is the best he could do?? Really ?

God gave us Free Will. . Who are you to dare and take from me that gift?

Who is the worst sinner... me living a good life treating people well

or the hypocrite who tries to control other people? Live your life if you have a "way" that you think is better than everyone else... ok prove it walk the walk before you ever even try to talk the talk.

Two ears one mouth means listen twice as often as you speak.

The religious really like to hear themselves speak. The way they carry on reminds me of mental illness.

That being said, loved your hub.
