    When I told my mom On Easter

    that I'm bisexual she thought it was a joke. On Monday I told her by saying I had a dream that I was dating a girl. Except it wasn't weird to me because I don't just like guys I like girls too and she's ok with it. 😊 I'm free to be me I don't have to hide it anymore!!!

    Coming Out To My Family

    I have come out to my immediate family and best friend. I wish I could come out at school but I know someone who dropped out because of the way they were treated. Sometimes I feel so alone, but I know there are so many people in a similar situation as I.

    I just came out at Bigender.

    Ever since I was a little kid I remember feeling like two different people in one body. I felt like I had my twin stuck inside me and he wanted to get out. But my parents and peers kept referring to me as a girl. So I assumed that what I was feeling was bad so I suppressed one...

    It took a whole day for my mom to start telling

    me I was going to hell. Immediately after I told her, she gave me a hug, told me she loved me, and told me to read the bible, crying the whole time. But the very next day she starts texting me and tells me this decision will send me to hell. Life.
