When I came out, I felt such a huge attraction to girls. Almost always falling for girls. I fell for a straight girl in 7th grade and guess what happened, she spread rumors. And pathetically, it was over email. I’ve learned my lesson that I shouldn’t do that ever again. (Genderfluid 16)
When I came out to my mom I was 15 and she said: “At least I know you won’t get pregnant soon.” Then she told me she wanted to meet my girlfriend.
When I came out for the first time it was to my best friend (she is a girl and I’m a boy). Since I had already tried so many times, I told her by text I needed to talk about a secret so she went mad and the day after she came at my house. Before I could even speak she told me: “I have thought about this for long and I’m afraid that you are going to tell me you are gay. Is it true?” I said yes and that I had wanted to tell her for long. She started to laugh, then turned angry and told me: “Why have you waited for so long? I’ve always wanted a gay best friend!!”
When I came out, it was May 2015 and I was on holiday with my mother, in the St. Kitts. We went to a restaurant together and a female waitress appeared to like me. My mother said the waitress has no chance, as I’m straight and have a boyfriend. I said, “She’s right, the waitress has no chance because I love my boyfriend, but I’m not straight.” My mother looked shocked and confused. I wanted to put her mind at ease. I simply stated that I was “Pansexual” and wasn’t with my boyfriend because he’a a man, I was with him because I love who he is as a person. She didn’t comment further and appears to accept it.
When I came out it was to my boyfriend of eight and a half years. I told him I’m pansexual. He accepts this and it doesn’t affect our relationship, because we love each other. I felt obliged to be honest to myself and him — that’s why I told him. The funny fact about it is — I only realised I was pansexual two and a half years ago. It was during an introspective moment with myself lol I have these moments often 🙂 I realised I love my partner, not because he’s a man – but because of his personality, temperament, humour, strong moral values and good nature 🙂
When I came out, I texted my Mom while I was on a field trip saying, “I like girls.” She simply said, “Ok,” and we never brought it up again. I’m glad it went well but I still have to tell her I’m transgender. FtM Omnisexual/romantic, 12 yr old.
When I came out, the first person I told was my amazing history teacher who’s like a father to me. He accepts me and helped me through difficulties, like telling my homophobic parents (we had that talk last week and I told my parents two days ago and now it’s super awkward and tense). I’m glad he’s in my life and supports me, and that he’s there for me no matter what. It’ll get better with time, and one day I will be 100% open about this.
When I came out to one of my friends, she told me she had liked me for a while. I told her the same thing back! And now we’re dating. ❤ Female, bi
When I came out, it was one of the most emotional times of my life. I was 13, and I was hanging out with my mom in my room and she saw my self-harm scars. After repeatedly and worriedly asking why, I gathered the courage and told her I thought I was lesbian. I started crying, then she started crying; it was a big mess overall. But in the end, my mother and I had created a bond no other two human beings could share. We’re closer than ever now, and I don’t regret a single bit of it.
