Making a list?

So I didn't put this in the other post cause it's unrelated, but I'm thinking of jumpstarting the coming out schedule.

First of all, one of my best friends from when I was growing up is visiting NYC this weekend. I really think he's one of the first people I'd want to tell.

Second, my parents are visiting in a few weeks, and I kind of feel like I want to tell my sister before them; I'm close to my sister, and it's kind of odd but I feel like I want to make sure I get to tell her and she doesn't hear it secondhand from somewhere else. The problem is my sister is out of the country right now. I guess my question is, should I come out to her on Skype? The alternative is to wait til I go visit her in April, but right now that seems like an eternity away...

I kind of just want to start getting it over with, yknow?

Do other people make prioritized lists for who they're coming out to, or am I just that weird?


  1. I can't say that I have ever heard of anyone as detailed as you, but thats not really a bad thing. I would tell any family member in person so that you can observe their body language and react appropriately. Of course, you know your family best, so thats just a judgment call. I know that I could never do that. Starting with your friend sounds like a good plan.

    Much Love and good luck,

  2. I meant Skype video chat, but yeah I would rather come out in person too. The thing is I am not gonna see her in person til April as she is doing school abroad.

    I'm gonna video chat with her tonight, but I don't think this is the right time. First of all she'll be in a public internet cafe, second of all, we are going to be limited to exactly thirty minutes, and that just seems like too much pressure...

    Maybe this weekend though.
