When I came out as pansexual, my parents rejected me, ignored my words and told my younger siblings to stay away from me. I had an awesome, supportive friend group though, and I got through it. Four and a half years later, two of my siblings are happily supporting me, and my youngest sister felt confident enough to come out as gay to the whole family. My parents are reconsidering their perspective on it, and I have a loving partner of two years. It gets better!
When I came out as bi, I told my classmate and she was allll good!!! Next I told my male friend who I love and he only said, “Why?” Then I told my female friend who I also love and she was fine. Long live LGBT!!!!
When I came out to my mom, she said she thought it was a phase, but she would support me. When I came out to my dad, he just accepted what I said without question. My friends (who were already out) support me. I feel really lucky to be surrounded by such wonderful confident people.
When I came out as a bisexual man I was in Denny’s with my roommate and her boyfriend. He was in the bathroom and we were waiting for a table. She asked me if I was gay and I said no. She then asked if I was bi and I said yeah. She then got all giggly and began smiling because she finally knew the truth. (Apparently her and all of our friends have been assuming that I wasn’t straight for quite some time.)
When I came out, I was at an ice skating rink with my best friend. I told her I was bi and she was super supportive but she also guessed it because of the way I talk about certain girls (oops).
When I came out, it was to my Girl Scout Troop. They were really supportive and encouraged me to tell my mom. A few months ago I came out to my dad, who, though Christian, was extremely supportive as well. Now I have an awesome girlfriend and I’ve learned to dismiss those who hate on me.
When I came out to my best friend I was shaking like crazy. After about 20 minutes of staring at the words “I’m gay” that I typed on my phone, I pressed send. She was very accepting like I knew she would be; that’s why I came out to her. But still I haven’t come out to anyone else because I’m afraid of how they’ll react.
When I came out as transgender to my best friend, she was extremely supportive. She started calling me my female name and referring to me as a girl. Word got around school; I get and still get bullied for being transgender as well as gay. I told my parents and they are not really supportive. Oh well, at least I have my friends.
When I came out, the only support was from my best friend. Then I told some other friends and some were not as supportive. Word got around and I got bullied and bottles that said “fag” thrown at me. No matter though, I have the support of those who truly do matter.
