    It was at night, well more in the evening,

    around 9:30 PM when I came out. I was walking to the bus stop with my friend (my girl best friend) (we're like brother and sister) after a theater play at our school. It was an amazing show! It has been two or three weeks since i've accepted myself as an homosexual and I couldn...

    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...

    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...

    I came out of the closet on July 3, 2013 as FTM transgender person. I wore my men's red shirt and shorts to the store. At first I worried about people would look at me funny or look at my pants and make comments that would embarrass me. But no one said a word. I received...

    I came out of the closet

    when I was 17 years old. At the time I was bi sexual. But as time went by I realized I was Lesbian. When I told my parents. They were taken back and not very accepting. My sisters kinda already figure. It was a crazy haha

    I can't say I am fully out

    since I'm keeping this fact away from my parents, but having friends know and be true to myself is a great feeling. I suppose I can say I'm living more of a double life. Any of you are, or had dealt with this situation?
