In 2017, Warfield publicly came out stating: When I told my mother I was gay, she said she knew, and had known all my life. Then, she asked me not to come out publicly while she was alive. I agreed, even though the request and her admission were hurtful in ways I couldn’t put my finger on then, and probably haven’t completely worked through now. But, everybody who knew me, knew I was gay.
The people I didn’t tell knew anyway, and tacitly agreed to pretend that the unacknowledged had been acknowledged and accepted. Like I’m sure is true for millions of other glass door closeted people. When I went to bars, which was frequently, I never tried to hide who I was. So, it was an open secret. Had I never come out publicly, many, many people would have known.
It would not then have ever really been a betrayal of trust to “spill the beans.” Because it wasn’t a secret, it was an uncomfortably kept promise to my mother. But, it was also not the only reason I didn’t come out swinging when she passed. The fear of the judgment of strangers and their holier-than-thou “shoulds” was at least as big of a burden to bear. But the “shoulds” that “should” matter don’t. Nobody should have to hide their sexuality. No parent should ask their child to.
