I Came Out Of The Closet

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 118 People

    For 23 years I hid who I was from my family,

    friends and even myself. At a young age I knew I wasn't like most of the other boys in my school. I remember particularly in middle school when the other guys would make comments about how Sara was "hot" and Ashley was "cute" and all I could think was "well their nice" but...

    I have been gay for a while,

    but recently got the guts to come out. I, like every time I get over my anxiety, went all out and posted it on Facebook. Although I did that, hardly anyone knows, and I only hear about it behind my back. (I'm a large and imposing teddy bear of a teenager.) but yeah. Not many...

    Literally, almost. So instead of a closet,

    I have a wardrobe... I think you know where this is going..! I cleared all the stuff cluttering it, took out clothes e.t.c. and just plopped them onto my bed. I practised what I was going to say, and then called my mum to come upstairs. I put on Freedom by George Michael on my...

    I dont really know how this website works

    but I'm just going to use this to get a few things of my chest. I recently (ca. 2 months ago) came out as a lesbian to my three closest friends (two of them being straight girls, and the other being a gay man), and each of them told me they were so proud of me and loved me no...

    I just told one of my close friends I was gay,

    and she was totally accepting! I feel so free and happy. It literally feels like 1000 pounds have been lifted off my chest. I am so excited for what the future holds. I can't wait to finally start telling my friends and just embodying who I am fully!

    I've been in denial for a very long time.

    The other day I finally came out to my best friend. We were playing gta, drinking and joking around when out of nowhere she asked me if I was gay. I was speechless. I knew that I was but I'd never been able to accept it but she'd always been there supporting me so it made it...

    I remember how terrified I was about coming out

    as Bi. I was 13 and I thought for sure I'd lose my best friend. I didn't though, she's been by my side for years and I love her for it. Because of her instant acceptance I was able to become perfectly comfortable with myself and if anyone asked I never lied to them. Coming out...

    It was the 24th of October

    when I came out as gay in front of my classmates. One requirement for my speech communication class is to have an impromptu speech given a certain prompt. People were called randomly and I fixed my eyes on the projector screen, waiting for the prompt to be flashed. "REGRET...

    On National Coming Out Day (October 11) I came

    out as bisexual to everyone on Facebook. The only person who doesn't know is my mother, because we aren't friends on Facebook, haha! But I don't care if she finds out :) I'm out and it feels great!!

    I...I...came out of the closet

    but not the way I'd like it to. My mom hear my brother and I talking about a girl I liked but she thought I was talking about a girl my brother like. I build courage out nowhere to tell her It was in fact me. This is the first time I saw my mother so disappointed. She then...

    I just came out to my mom!

    She was completely accepting and wasn't mad in any way! I couldn't be happier since I've heard some pretty bad coming out stories :)
