I would say no. You don't. Your life is yours to live- and your's alone. And while I am always one to encourage others to come out, I would be extremely cautious about doing so in your case. Why? If you know
you mother will reject and disinherit you, then I would think very carefully about matters.
How about this question: do you deserve to be thrown out of the house you live in?
I would answer no to that question too. First and foremost comes the matter of your survival. Not to be taken lightly.
Your life- not your lifestyle (and I confess to having strong feelings about that word!) is what's important here.
In sum: I wouldn't come out to your mother unless you feel secure inside and out. Very secure.
