I had enough of hiding who I was and being made to feel ashamed for being gay.I was talking to my grandma on the phone and I blurted out that I am gay.And she's Catholic and she started saying how I'm crazy.When I said I want to marry a girl-she said marriage is between a man and a woman.She was unsupportive and not happy at all Don't feel like anyone loves me for who I am anymore All my life I was made to feel immoral and like me being me was wrong-leading to lots of self hatred and not accepting the fact I am gay.Now I accepted it and felt more comfortable, but now feel a bit sad that my Grandma did not react very well to me saying I am gay.I told her if she's going to be like that,then I won't talk to her and that I won't accept her intolerance.I don't know what to think or do now?

Most young people don’t care nowadays, but it’s not really something to blurt out to an older Christian person who is unlikely to be supportive. It’s something you need to say in person as well.

I would just keep my distance and she will either accept it or she won’t. Get on with your life. Find people who will support you because there are plenty of nice people out there.

You grandmother sounds almost as friendly as mine.
I share a quarter of my dna with a toxic ultra traditionalist catholic fanatic in her 80s who constantly rants bible verses about hating the rest of the world and almost everything about modern life.
It's a very long list: atheists, protestants, all other religions, catholics who disagree with her, divorced people, gay people, people who watch television/do yoga/eat takeaways.

Cause of severe migraine, to be avoided like the plague.
She's been vile for over sixty years, made my mother's childhood a misery.
Her husband and his mother were even worse.

You said you have accepted the fact that you are gay and comfortable and that's all that matters, maybe in time your grandma comes around to that fact. Just focus on yourself!
