When I came out, my mom cried. I told her over a year ago, and she started crying. She went on about how she wanted grandkids, and basically told me not to tell anyone. I’m gonna come out to her and her side of the family again soon. (Male, Gay, 15)

When I came out to my friend, it was over email. I was scared she was going to judge me, but to my surprise, she said she was bisexual too! Now I am more confident about coming out to my homophobic parents. (13, bisexual, female)

When I came out… it was actually an accident. My dad was checking through my phone and saw my notes on my phone about my concern that I was gay. They were pretty awkward about the subject for about 4 months but now it’s been a year and I feel great! (14, Female, Gay)

When I came out, my friends thought it was awkward and weird. Our friendship kinda cracked and they don’t talk to me anymore. It’s kind of sad. (13, Lesbian)
