Hi Depressed, welcome to the forum and thanks for posting.
Great advice from several people and I have little to add. This isn't only about your father - it impacts on you personally in that your sense of him and the reality of who he has been in your life is being questioned. On some level your sense of reality has been challenged and your feelings are totally normal. We as gay people are sometimes impatient for people to accept us when we disclose our sexual orientation and we need to allow people space and time to come to terms with the news. This entails a process - you may have to mourn the loss of something as you knew it before you can simply accept the changed reality.
Please keep posting.
