When I came out, I could not wait to tell the nearest person to me, which was my older cousin. She actually helped me through the coming out process, and I was so excited and I came out to my friends the very same day. Most of them knew or suspected. I lost a couple friends but they aren’t real friends. And my dad is anti-gay but I do not care. Live your life the way you want to and don’t let anyone bring you down. 16, gay, male.
