    My coming out story is pretty normal nothing

    too drastic but not all rainbows and ponies. The first person I told out of my family was my older sister. The reason I told her first was because I knew she would of accept it and she did. The second person I told was my mom. It was kinda awkward when I told her. I didn't...

    I'm a writer, and I've always been better at

    wording things on paper. I knew from a pretty young age (like probably eight) that I was attracted to my gender as well as the opposite. My best friend at the time was over one New Year's and I decided as a resolution to tell my mum that I'm bisexual. I was probably like twelve...

    It wasn't voluntary by any means.

    I was hanging out with a "friend" in 7th grade; for the purposes of this story, let's call her Jane. She was the only person who would talk to me at this awkward point in life, so I spent as much time as possible talking to her. On one particular day, we were telling each other...

    I came out to my acting class a couple months

    ago. I'm not a very trusting person so I thought maybe I should really start to try. I had to write a personal monologue about an event or experience. I decided to write about discovering I was a lesbian and I was scared to present it. There were only 7 people in my class but...

    My experience was not what I had hoped for.

    I wasn't planning on coming out, it just happened. I was driving in the car with my mom when I was 19 and we were just making small talk. Then the subject somehow turned to birth control. She told me I should start taking it and I told her I don't need it. She was almost...

    I'm not fully "out" but I'll tell anyway.

    I've had this friend for a few years, and we kinda stopped talking until around June. We've talked almost every single day since. A few months ago I was like, "well, I know she's ok with it, and she trusts me and I trust her. Oh what the hell" so I told her that I have something...

    I knew I like the ladies at an early age.

    I hid it for 32 years. Through my catholic grade school years, public high school, and even through my college years. I wasn't questioned about it until my college years. I ended up dating men on and off then. Being gay wasn't as accepting as it is now. So, I hid it. I wound...

    When I was younger, my parents always

    encouraged me to tell them things. They were supportive of me no matter what, but "confessing" that you're a lesbian is never an easy thing to do. I told my mom on accident in the car, on my way to guitar lessons. "So, any guys you like?" "No." "Male celebrities?" "No." "Anyone...
