MTV is really adamant about me doing the TV show I applied for for them. It requires my mom and I to basically be on camera and talk about our differing views on sex and relationships. Yes, this would require me to basically out myself on national television and also for my mom to admit she has a lesbian daughter. While I have no real problem with this, my mom does. I can't do the show without her. I get $1000 for it, but I told her she could have the money. I just want to be able to get my story out and hopefully be able to help teens who are dealing with this same problem and struggle with talking to their parents about this stuff.
So my question to you is: How should I approach my mom to make her feel better about doing this? Basically, any comments are helpful. I really want to do this.
