When I came out as a lesbian I was 15. My mum’s friend’s daughter got pregnant, so my mum told me I had to be careful. I told her I needn’t because I had a girlfriend. She just asked me for a picture of her and said, “Thank god you are not getting pregnant”. Thanks, mum.

When I came out to one of my best friends, we were sitting in woodshop and I was having a panic attack because a teacher saw a note saying that I am lesbian. I was in a fight with the only other person who knew and I had to talk to someone, so I told her. She looked up from her work sheet, smiled, said, “As long as you don’t like any of us” and hugged me. I never felt more loved. (:

When I came out as a lesbian it was to my mum when I was 14. I knew she would be accepting as one of her friends is gay, and her daughter is my best friend. My mum just smiled, hugged me, and said I’m glad you told me.

When I came out to a friend of mine, I did it over text. He replied back almost instantly with “Ehay” and texted, “Just as long as you know you’re in the friend zone ;)” It was such an amazing relief that I could not stop smiling for a while after that!

When I came out, I was extremely nervous. When I told my sister, she was really excited! My brother was totally understanding and my mom has been really supportive. My dad is getting used to the idea and I now have a beautiful girlfriend I can be proud of :)

When I came out as bisexual, the first person I told was the person I fell in love with. He’s a beautiful human being and inspires me to be strong.

When I came out I had told two of my closest friends and they were both fine with it and then I felt like I had to tell my brother next. I sent him a video in an email titled, “I’M GAY” by Grace Helbig and he came in my room and gave me a hug and said he loves me. He’s gay as well.

When I came out I told my friend in the park. She said okay and threw a cake at me. We had a food fight and she just told me we had a gay fight, and that’s how she came out to me :)

When I came out it was at my friend’s birthday sleepover party at 1 in the morning. We were playing Marry F*ck Kill and my friend gave me 3 guys. I killed one, then said, “Can I have girls? I’m lesbian.” They said, “Wait, really?” I nodded yes, then they gave me girls.

When I came out as asexual my mum said that it was the best thing for a 15-year-old to be. I’m not sure if she fully understands it but I can live with that.
