When I came out I had gotten the reaction I was expecting from my grandmother (mother deceased), just bad and Christian conservative. But from the rest of everyone I knew it went smoothly. I was 13 at the time and telling your grandma (mom figure) that you like girls just doesn’t end well. Now I am 21 and married to a man and life couldn’t be anymore confusing.
When I came out as lesbian to my friends, they said, “Tori, we wouldn’t care if you dated aliens, we’ll always love you. Now go get us some food.”
When I came out for the first time to my friends I wrote about it here so now I’m telling you guys that I came out to my sister. Here is how it happened.
Me: I’m bi.
Her: No you’re not
Me: Yes I am
Her: Are you sure?
After that we just both went back to what we were doing. She hasn’t mentioned it since.
When I came out to my mom and my sister, they both were surprised about it, but, thank goodness, were very accepting and supportive. Me and my mom were crying a lot on the phone, lol. They both just wanted for me to finally be happy and to enjoy my life. Being a shy introvert, I feel very proud.
When I came out the only thing my friend was offended about was that I didn’t have a crush on her.
When I came out as lesbian it was during a speech in front of my whole class. I spoke about the need for more education about sexual orientation in school, and they all smiled and gave me the warmest applause ever.
When I came out as pansexual to my friends and my boyfriend, I was completely unafraid, because I knew that they would support me. However, I had kept it from my parents for years, until today. They outed me and then proceeded to not only look at me disgusted, but haven’t spoken to me since.
When I came out I got mixed reactions… but things got better and I wouldn’t change myself for anything else now.
When I came out to my closest friends they just looked at me as if I just said, “I like pizza” and continued talking normally. They’ve been very supportive. I couldn’t be more thankful to have them.
When I came out on tumblr, I knew that only one person from real life (my crush) would see the post and that she’d handle it well. She immediately called me and tearfully came out in return, and now we’re in a relationship and out to some friends. Our parents (conservative and fairly homophobic) have no idea, but still I’ve never been happier.
