As society becomes more progressive, gays and lesbians are coming out younger and younger--but not necessarily to accepting parents.
That was the case for Nico Lang, who says he's had a "complicated" relationship with his father after coming out of the closet.
"It was really apparent from a very early age that I was not going to be like other boys," Lang recalls. "When I was a kid, my parents thought I would probably grow up to be [transgender] because I had a predilection for trying on dresses a whole lot."
Lang went on to note, "I think that, more than anything, my dad and I lacked a common language."
Lang was one of several to react to "I Didn't Deserve To Lose You: An Open Letter to My Anti-Gay Parents," a blog penned by college student Shura Lopez-Beale on her family's response to her coming.
