When I came out it was the scariest and most liberating moment of my life. I was driving with my best friend and I finally got up the courage to tell her, after numerous failed attempts, that I was bisexual. It took me the longest amount of time to get the words out, but when I finally did she hugged me and made me pull over. We ending up sitting there and talking for hours. She was totally supportive of me. I haven’t told anybody else since then but I still feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders.
When I came out, it was to my beautiful best friend, a catholic girl. I was twelve and she was nearly twelve, and I told her that I was bi and in love with her. She said it wouldn’t change us, but it did anyway. Now it’s been three years, and I still love her, and she knows, and she won’t even look my way.
When I came out as a bisexual woman to my friends, my ex-boyfriend and his twin brother kept saying I was a lesbian who doesn’t want to feel awkward. Lucky for me, I have great friends who accept me, and we’re going to give those twins a piece of our minds!
When I came out to my friend, it was at school and I was too scared to tell her. I just wrote it on a sticky note. She told me she was gay too. I’m just so happy.
When I came out to my brother we were in my room and he was trying to make fun of me, calling me “lesbian.” Then I said, “It’s true. I’m a lesbian.” He was super surprised but ok with it.
When I came out to my best friend as bisexual she was pretty fine with it. At the beginning she was accepting but now it turns out that she doesn’t want me to tell my other friends because she’s ashamed to be a friend of mine if I tell I’m bi. She told me that if my friends leave me apart she’s gonna do it too because it would be my decision to come out. So now I’m really confused and I’m afraid because I don’t know how are they gonna react. I don’t wanna be alone again…
When I came out, it was to my friend. I told her who my mancrush was. I then just gave up and said he was my crush. She wasn’t mad and we’re still great friends and I’m just so happy.
When I came out it wasn’t planned at all. I am 14 and I’m happy it went this way, because I’m not an organized person. I had to do a project about LGBT with a gay boy in my class. I told my parents about the project and they said, “So you’re coming out?” I said, “Okay! Why not?.. Mom, dad…. I fall in love with girls” while throwing my hands up in the air. They stared at me first, like I was crazy, but then they were also like, “Okay, we are happy for you!”
When I came out to my parents last month, they were basically in denial and my mom cried after yelling at me. Now they never even bring it up.
