When I came out on my Snapchat story for National Coming Out Day, I only thought my friends would see. Turns out, I forgot to block my cousin from seeing it, and she found out. I told her not to tell anyone in my family, and I was extremely shocked and surprised at her acceptance for me, since she’s Catholic, and I thought all Catholics condemned homosexuality. She told me that if I wasn’t ready to tell my family, that I should take it off my story, because “Social media travels fast.” I have no idea how many friends saw the post before I took it down, but I’m ready to come out again if I need to.
