Being honest with your parents is a good thing, but there are parents who still won't accept that their kids are homosexual, actually have sex, or in your case, cross dress. There's nothing wrong with cross dressing, but you have to be realistic that your parents and some people will not understand your desire to do this. If you feel your parents will at least be open to what you have to say, tell them. They may be understanding, confused and upset, but if they're willing to listen without violent arguments or accusations, it's a good start. If they have been angry or closed minded in the past about your feelings, you might want to wait to tell them until you're older and on your own. It's your life--you're definitely not the first nor last teenager to keep secrets from parents because they would have been overly judgemental or irrational about it. Is there any way you could go to counseling privately? Talking to someone who won't have biased feelings about this might help you sort out your feelings and be able to accept yourself better.

Should parents know teenagers HIV status?

If the teenager is not the legal age of 18 then yes, they have a right to know the status of HIV. However, depending on the doctor and the oath they take 'Code of Ethics' the doctor may give you the chance to tell your parents and stay completely out of it. It would take courage for a teenager to tell their parents, but wise to do. Although the parents may be shocked and frightened and appear angry they will always love their child no matter what the age or what is going on in their lives.

How do you tell your parents you have been dating a guy that is 8 years older than you for a year?

If you want your parents to trust you ever again, you have to tell the truth. The problem here is, haven't your parents met this guy in the whole time that you have been dating? They might already suspect that he is older. The difference in age does not matter when you are in your mid to late twenties and on up but when you are a young teenager, the differences are immense. Your likes and dislikes are so different. However, be honest and sit down and tell them. Get them to be open minded first and not judgmental and perhaps they won't be angry at all.
