    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...

    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 told my parents I was gay

    when I was 16. I grew up in a very Mormon household so it didn't go over well. My mom told me she couldn't deal with me going to hell, and my dad threatened to shoot me. The next day, I has an appointment with LDS Family Services for straight conversion therapy. I was bounced...

    I came out as a bisexual on St.

    Valentine's Day, 2014, when I was a Junior in high school. Ever since about seventh grade, I've thought that I've felt a certain attraction to guys. However, growing up in such a hetero-normative society, it took a while for me to be able to accurately and comfortably define...

    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...

    Well, this will be about coming out to my mom.

    I first came out to my best friend in 7th grade (who is transgender). He immediately accepted me and we became inseparable. After that, I slowly started coming out to more and more of my friends as I gradually accepted me for the true me. Late one night this year, I remember...

    I thought maybe I'd get help from people who knew what it was like. I am terrified and need help. So, if it is alright could you message me (PM or just Reply) and help me with how I should do it without my family hating me afterwards? What is the best way to tell your family?
