When I came out it was the beginning of the school year. I had talked to my gay uncle and bisexual best friend and decided to tell my mom and her boyfriend. I literally went out and told them I had something important to say. I just said I like girls, went back to my room, then came back out to my mom crying and my mom’s boyfriend standing there. My best friend told me tonight that my mom told him that I’m just going through a phase. (Female, 16, lesbian)
