In brief: Approuch: they know
If don't already know, usually means they've been out of touch with your inner self for years: doubt your parents are that clueless.
I'll presume ur male (used word 'gay'); not that it matters, but i've had a pt in late 20's ask for help with the same high anxiety situation. Talk with closest parent first (usually unconditional loving mom): 'i'm gay, mom, have known since ? Yrs old'. Courage, man.

In brief: Be honest
I guess there is no specific way to tell your parents about your sexual orientation besides just being honest with them.

In brief: See a therapist
If you think it will be difficult to discuss this with your parents, you should consider speaking first with a therapist who can help you based on your expectations and personal history/experience with your parents.
