When I first came out I didn’t really know the terms “gay”, “lesbian” or “bisexual” because I was very young. I came out to my best friend and I said, “Hey I like girls and boys,” and we did a google search. (14, bisexual)

When I came out, I was so scared that my parents would judge me, even though I knew they were (kind of) supporters of the LGBT community. When I finally worked up the courage to tell my mom and dad, they said they loved me the same, which was good, but my mom said something along the lines of “Well, you are only 12, you may be too young to really know…” which was pretty offensive, but she now is completely fine with it (even though I literally came out a month ago xD) I have told almost everyone at school I’m demisexual/demiromantic/gay, and I have lost only 1 close friend 🙂 I’m happy as can be -12, gay male

When I came out to my best friend today I was shaking and could barely speak but after I’d managed to finish the sentence and after I’d explained to her what pansexuality is because she had no clue, she ended up being really supportive even though she’s quite religious. I am so relieved. I can’t believe that I went through two whole years of trying to tell her when her reaction is so positive!

When I came out to my close friends I was 14. They had a positive answer and told me that they already knew and their mums too. It was quietly weird. (16, lesbian)

When I came out to my dad last summer, I decided to do it in a joking way. I’m not sure though if he understood that I was coming out and I’m too scared to tell him again. He’s supportive of the lgbt community but he has a way of hating people who are too “openly gay”. That’s why I’m scared. (18, lesbian)

When I came out, I came out to my cousin first, my sister, and on Facebook to family and friends after graduating high school. 35 likes, positive comments, and 2 hugs from my mom and dad who I love more than anything. 21, Gay

When I came out I didn’t really do it. A classmate opened my phone up and read stuff that involved me being bisexual/pansexual and Ftm… Told the whole class. None of them would talk to me afterwards but I kept my close friends thankfully and my parents are okay with it but scared to tell the rest of my family.

When I came out, I came out on my 15th birthday on 12/25/16 to several of my cousins and my one sister. I ended up learning one was lesbian and another was bisexual. They were all very supportive, but I’m not going to tell my parents or classmates yet. I came out as lesbian and aromantic, but honestly I am still lost and confused in the asexuality spectrum.

When I came out I was 12. Ever since I was 5 I liked girls, and I just thought that’s how every girl felt. I came out to all of my friends and lost a lot of them. I am an asexual lesbian, I am almost 13, and I have been lying about my sexuality for almost 8 years. 12/Female/lesbian & asexual

When I came out, I was 15 years old. Most people were very accepting as most people who knew me already knew. They were just waiting for me to come to terms with it.
