OH I feel for you, a friend of mine in Mormon.
But I really don't have any advice except just be honest and open.

More important than probably anything else is that you must acknowledge--at least to yourself--that in telling them, you risk losing them from your life due to their beliefs.

The best thing I can suggest is that you try to educate them on same-sex partnerships (how all gay people aren't child molesters, that you're born gay, that you can have a normal life, etc.) before you tell them in an attempt to ease them in.

If you know they won't ever be able to accept you, you need to come to a decision about whether or not a lie is worth their presence in your life.

I agree with the above. Before you decide to tell them. Decide on how important it is to have them in your life vs living in lies

I'm sure it's a sensitive topic, especially if you still live with them (or not?). Once you are out living on your own, it's your life to do as you please. If you still live with them, telling them might risk you being kicked out, unless you have somewhere safe to go. You shouldn't have to hide in the closet for the rest of your life, it's not healthy for you.

This is going to be really hard for them, considering their strong beliefs, but Mormons also believe in being loving and the freedom to choose, so hopefully with some time they will be able to accept you as you are.
