When I came out to my best friend as bisexual she told me that I wasn’t and that I was just confused and scared of being bi because my parents don’t believe that bisexual is a thing. I don’t think I will ever come out again. (Female, 14, bi)

When I came out to my teacher, it was just the best moment in my life. She had to guess what’s up and when she got it, I started crying and she hugged me immediately and told me that everything’s alright. All of that was about 2 1/2 years ago and she still supports me so much, because I haven’t told anyone else yet. I am so glad that I told her, because I couldn’t ask for better support!! Female, 16, gay

When I came out, a girl kept asking me which boy I liked. She kept asking. I said none. She asked if i was bi and I hesitantly said yes. Then she literally named the whole class to ask. Lol.

When I came out as gay I told a friend and they said to me good luck. I don’t know how to tell my family in case they don’t like me any more because they do not like gays. But I don’t care and I am coming out gay in the next few days to them and don’t care what they say. 17, male, gay

When I came out, it was to my best friend after she told me that she had a crush on me. She said that she was happy for me and has been nothing but supportive ever since. A week later, I came out to two other female friends. I live in the Caribbean and our society (as well as my family) is conservative, religious and highly homophobic so I’m not in a hurry to come out publicly. One day, I’ll tell my parents and maybe my extended family. (17, Male, Gay)

When I came out to my mom, I secretly recorded her reaction on a voice memo. We got very emotional, and she told me how happy she is that I told her. Later in life, at my wedding, I plan to play her that voice memo. 🙂

When I came out to my doctor she finally understood how I could be so certain I wouldn’t get pregnant without taking birth control.

When I came out to my best friend, she had a very surprised and shocked face and all she could say was “really?” It was kind of hilarious and she has been an amazing support ever since.

When I came out to my best friends, they all had different reactions: One said, ‘It was a phase,’ another was completely surprised, and the other, boy, she asked a lot of questions, but they were pretty happy with having a Bi friend, so yay!

When I came out as bi to my best friend today, I was super nervous. But once I did he was just like, oh cool. So I feel good, really good now! 😄 (bisexual/13)
