That depends a lot on your family. And a lot on you. Coming out is a tough thing. Is your family generally accepting and nonjudgmental, particularly of LGBT folks? Is there anyone else in the family who has come out, and if so, how did they react? Do you feel comfortable telling them? Is being closeted around them becoming a major hindrance to your pysche or relationships?

My mom's apparently known for years, my dad on the other hand has NO clue. I came out to my family at about 17; to the replies of 'ok, so?.' It was the opposite of a big deal, and i feel better getting it off my chest. BUT, my family is pretty liberal, and very open minded. So take that into consideration, too.

It all depends on you, but I'd say a good time is when you have a serious partner that you want them to meet. If only because parents can sometimes not want to believe that their children are really bi or gay, so it's good to be able to show them that it's something to be taken seriously.

It depends on your family. Sometimes I think people worry too much about coming out though, especially as bi (as opposed to gay/lesbian). If you've got a partner then that's one thing but if you're experimenting then why tell everyone? If you don't (not aimed at the OP, I mean in general) tell everyone every time you have a night of passion with the opposite sex then why tell everyone if you fool around with the same sex?

Depends on the family, and depends on who in the family that you tell. I had issues with coming out to my family because I don't really fall under the proper definition of "bisexual," "straight," or "gay." I found that I spent more time explaining the terms "queer" and "pansexual" (what I more often identify as) than anything. That being said, I have a really conservative family, so I had to be careful with when to tell them. I've found that it's best to start with the members that are closest to you, and perhaps the ones that are the most understanding. I also prefer telling people one-on-one. You can be more open that way, and the person can feel free to ask you questions without wondering what other people around might think.
