If I was in your situation, move out and try to become independent before you tell your parents. They'll probably react negatively at first, but give them a while. If they're still giving you shit after like six months, you should just avoid them.
My parents are accepting, but some of my extended family are very homophobic and religious. It's a complicated situation, but I feel like if they treat me in a way I don't think is acceptable, I will walk away for good. They have no power over me and it seems so pointless to argue over whether I should have a different sexual orientation or whether I should keep it a secret or whether I should commit myself to lifelong celibacy. I just want to live a straightforward life just like my friends do.

I came out to my dad over the phone. Still haven't come out to my mom yet. She once left a church because the pastor said in a newspaper column that he "would support a gay priest in the hypothetical situation that one would be hired." - that was enough for my mom, she left her church of 20 years because the pastor said that one statement.
Also my very first memory of a gay couple was one that visited our house with some business deal and I remember her derisively making jokes after they left about how they were wearing matching rings but it didn't mean anything and some other shit that wasn't exactly too nice
I figure at this point I'd rather just have everyone else find out and tell her
