Welcome to Ask Pat.

It sounds like you have spoken to your parents about your sexuality but they are not accepting it. It sounds like you need acceptance from your parents so it must be very difficult for you not to get that acceptance from them.

However, the good thing is that you are reaching out for help. You have a right to be accepted for who you are and a right to get support. You might find it helpful to talk to the LGBT Helpline. See below opening hours and contact details. You can also log onto for more information about LGBT services and supports.
