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.
