I walked in on a conversation my mom and grandmother were having about me and my boyfriend at the time, I had introduced him as my friend and they were talking about how they were happy for me. When they saw I was there they said they always knew and didn't care at all.
I am only out to a few friends and no family because I don’t think I would be accepted and I’m still living at home so can’t risk it right now. Not sure if you’ve been back for awhile but welcome back stuie ❤️
It was simple, I think it was in 7th grade. At the time I felt like maybe I had a sexual attraction to girls and I’d definitely knew that I liked males. So I came out as bisexual to my parents but then a couple of months later it was extremely obvious to myself that I was never attracted to girls and then I fully was gay. I never really had insecurity about it, I knew who I was and I was fine with it. My parents were also very accepting and they support me all the way ;)
Yes! Besides one person I used to be friends with/hook up with, The first person who ever found out in my life found out by me being outed on this site :) then my whole school found out when I was lured by that other person. Then I just went with it, got trashed, told my whole family, and they took it pretty well. Was uncomfortable for a bit but got better. It sucks but being out made me a lot happier in the long run and it’s been like 6 years. My grandma still doesn’t know but at this point we’re kinda just waiting til she dies lmao.
times_places I think that is amazing my friend. I wish I had that kind of courage at that age. I discovered I was gay in the 7th grade as well but didn’t come out until along after I graduated high school. A lot of people can be inspired by this, thanks for sharing.
temponeptune I’m so sorry to hear that. It sucks not being able to share your own story when you’re ready. In this case you couldn’t control it but it looks like you made the most of it and took ownership of what you could control, how you felt and addressed it. Good on you :)
Ah, I'm also bigender. It took me a while to realize it. But around when I hit puberty I realized I was only going through half of what I was supposed to, and that I wanted traits of both sexes, so when I turned 18 I started HRT without getting rid of my previous characteristics so that I could have characteristics of both. Coming out was difficult, and a lot of people are judgemental and didn't understand, but those most supportive are dear to my heart.
