    So Erm I Came Out As Bisexual... C:

    So I had already came out as bi-curious/bi-sexual to my friends a few weeks ago. The majority of them took it seriously and understood me for who I am, however a few thought I was being silly because I have had doubts about my sexuality in the past. I think those people now...

    Was A Goal, Now An Experience.

    I always kept the fact that I was bi a secret because of certain experiences in high school. I had no friends for 5 years, because no one wanted to associate themself with someone they heard about through rumours only. I barely spoke, though I was fine in academics, and tried to...

    I was so scared of coming out

    that I didn't come out until Year 11 of high school. I started by telling people at school that I was gay, which gave some people another reason to bully me but other than that it was fine. Then during a fallout with a friend, she said she would tell my mum and dad. I was coming...

    Well, up to this point only 2 people knew I was

    gay. Today I had school off because of the subzero temperatures we had, though my parents still had work, so I had the house to myself all day. Somehow, with some convincing of one of the friends I already told, I found the courage to tell 3 more of my friends that I was gay (so...

    My coming out story is something I don't really

    like talk about often. It's mostly a blur anyway. My mom and grandparents aren't as religious as some, but I have never seen them react the way they did when I came out. I had just turned 14 when I was at my cousins one night. I couldn't stop thinking about how I was going...

    Stoned Words Are Sober Thoughts.

    I came out as bisexual to my parents to get out of trouble. Not the usual story one hears, am I right? My mum always knew that I was not straight. I mean I did musical theater for 8 years, I cannot stand most sports, I love to shop, I am quite flamboyant, and i help her decide...

    I came out to my parents yesterday.

    . It was hard for them to understand but I think they pretty much have it. My mom supports it while on the other hand my dad doesn't because he lectured me about it for 2 hours, but he still loves me.. It was a very Interesting experience. It may get back to normal but as of now...

    I guess you would call it coming out,

    but I was nervous. I am bisexual (as of right now) and I had a girlfriend. She had messaged me telling me that she had just told her mother. So, I immediately called my dad back to my room (because I had just worked up some killer courage) and said, "Dad, I'm dating a girl." and...
