    I'm 17, and I'm transgender.

    My sister already knows, but my mom doesn't, and that's the scary part. I think I want to tell her on my 18th birthday, but I always feel like I don't have the guts to do so

    Sitting here watching Grammys w my mother.

    .. Loving Sam Smiths courage and only wish I was as strong as he may be. Fighting back tears from a life that has been nothing but a fraud. Not the person I want to be at all. Im not Gay, def Bi... But its all so hard...

    My sister is gay. She's marrying another woman.

    And everybody is so happy for them. Me included, even my parents. But I was there when my sister came out to my parents and they weren't supportive immediately. Butthey accept it now. And are happy for my sister. But me being the only other daughter, they've said things to me...

    My plan is to come out between now

    and my 16th birthday in March.. hopefully. I plan on coming out by baking cookies and icing the words "gay" on them and be like "well you are what you eat"

    Ever try to be with a gender you do not find

    even the slightest interest for just because your family will disown you if you don't. That you will be hurt physically and verbally during school, and sent calls every Saturday for 2 years. It sucks.. I can't stand being someone I'm not. Pretending to like someone I don't.

    It sucks not being able to be

    who you are & not being able to love your partner out loud because some of the most important people will reject you or treat you differently.

    I should probably stop hiding from the outside

    world. But I can't, at least I don't want to. People just hurt me over and over again. Just leave me and One Direction alone. They are my boys. They are the only people that haven't hurt me. It's been 3 almost 4 years since I've been in the fandom. I love them. They have yet to...

    Denise. 6 beautiful letters

    that make me shudder with memories. Denise. A name that makes me remember every kiss on my cheeks, collarbones, and neck. Denise. The person that changed my life and made me realize that I don't know who I am. Denise. The girl that made me realize who I was. Denise. 6...

    I want to so badly!!!

    I'm tired of living a lie. I'm gay and I love men and I don't want to have to hide it anymore....but at the same time I'm very close with my family and I love them very much. I know they'll turn their backs on me because being gay isn't how "god intended it", but I was born...

    Guess who ain't gonna get any moral support?

    Anyway, I posted about my issue in another area on here and nobody commented. Nobody even clicked it! I'm sorry I'm between spectrums like this in a way that makes dtraight people tell me I'm confused, and lgbtq people tell me I am confused too. My issues are important too...

    My friend randomly asked me

    if he wanted me to go out with him and some other friends, so I'm going to hang out with them tonight. If I end up in the car alone with him at the end of the night, I'm gonna come out to him. He will be the first person I've told since my brother...

    I saw my first shooting star last night.

    I was with the girl I loved more than anything and when I started to make the wish to have her as mine... I realized my wish was to late. My parents would disown me, she is going away for college, and love can only stretch, burn, and go so far. I loved her... I love her... I...

    My Dad doesn't even support me supporting the

    LGBT community, and my Mom thinks LGBT is a joke. They know I'm not the typical female girl, and I've had multiple (pathetic) attempts to 'be more feminine', but pretending to be someone I'm not has never worked out for me. Coming out currently isn't an option, and there's a...

    Why can't I just tell them

    that I'm gay! Every time I try and say the words I can't get them out. I'm ready to tell them but I just can't. I guess my biggest worry is that they don't believe me. What should I say if they ask me about why I had boyfriends when I knew I was gay.. I mean I don't know. Life...

    I want to tell people

    but I can't. Only a handful of people know I am gay but I can't tell my parents, it's too weird. Someone help, I need advice

    I'm already out to almost all of my friends.

    I think the only ones who don't know, it's simply bc I haven't talked to them in forever. One friend, I realized I had forgotten to tell her like a week after my GF asked me out and I was oh crap I gotta tell Leigh. Come to find out she's known for a while now and had been part...

    I just want to be myself.

    It's not much to ask. I don't want to have to hide myself anymore. But the reactions my family has towards lgbt characters in media (like the movie I watched with my parents earlier) shows me that it is still not an option yet.

    I came out to my family

    and relatives early this year, my family accepted me with open arms while my uncle and aunty chose to ignore me. I am still coming to terms with my sexuality. I want to come out at school but I know I can't expect others to accept me when I'm still learning to accept myself. My...

    Actually the opposite.

    I'm already out but sometimes wish I wasn't. I just need to vent really quick. I can't stand how people think my sexual preference is the ONLY thing that defines me as a person. Example: people who out me to brand new acquaintances before we have a chance to get to know each...

    I wish I came from a time

    when I could have come out of the closet many years ago. I have lived a lie my entire life to make other people happy and not myself. I want to come out to be the person I have always wanted to be and not what is expected of me. Soon once I start hormones I will not have a...
