    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...

    I wrote about this girl I kept seeing in my

    dreams in my journal. My mom found it, flipped her **** and my grandma suggested I fast and pray because my feelings were a sin :/ to this day I'm not open about my sexuality.

    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...

    I came out as bisexual

    when I was 13. I'd been having bisexual feelings for a few years and after kissing a boy for the first time, I realized it wasn't just a hormonal phase. Coming out to my dad was easy. He's pretty liberal and was totally okay with it. In fact I didn't even initiate the outing...

    I am coming out...I am an ASEXUAL woman.

    ...I have told a few friends, but not family. I really need to talk to others who identify themselves as asexual, or want to know more about it. Would love to hear from anyone.

    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...

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

    before I moved out. My parents and I were sitting at dinner and I just blurted it out, which I now regret. My parents were dumbfounded. "Thank God you are moving out tomorrow." "We didn't raise you like this." "You know how embarrassing this is to us." "What will all the people...

    day. The conversation drifted over to sex and sexuality. I decided I trusted her enough to say that I'm bi. She looked very surprised and said "No.Way." Then she was quiet for about a second. I was nervous, my heart lurched. Then she laughed and yelled "Me too!" With probably...

    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 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...
