I don't really see a need for parents to know... mind you I'm 40 and they really are just people in my mind that I have to deal with and them me. Not that I don't love them, but we just are now. When I was younger I told them stuff and caused them minor heart attacks for no reason other than I thought it was my duty to say because that is what we are taught as kids. I don't think they needed to know details of my life unless it meant that they would be involved.
If it were me I would wait until I knew that they would have to be involved somehow.
There has been a lot on coming out on here so you could do some searching through tags and stickies to find out what others think. Really it comes down to you and your relationship with your parents....
