  1. Hiiiiii. Im 22 years old and a gay man :). I’ve been struggling for awhile to come out to my parents. Im not exactly sure why because they’re accepting, liberal, and have said I can love whoever I want. I’ve been out to all my friends for years and I came out to my sister two years ago and planned to tell my parents but I just sorta stalled on that. I want to tell them asap but every time I open my mouth to tell them it’s like nothing comes out. Maybe because I’m making a big deal out of it but if anyone has advice on how I could casually bring it up that would be soooo helpful. I try to remind myself that the sooner I do it the sooner it’ll be over and the sooner we’ll live more normal lives but I just can’t get myself to say the words. Please lmk if anyone had any advice!! Thanks :)
  2. Hi!!! I would like some tips on coming out to my parents/friends. Sorry if I’m doing this wrong I’m new on this platform :)

  4. Hi, I don't exactly know how forums work, but I saw this while I was reading an article about bisexuality. I guess I just clicked on it in hopes of someone hearing me out. I was around 15 years old when I had suspicions about myself being bisexual. But I just recently accepted my identity. Now, I'm kind of realizing that growing up, I did like girls. I just wasn't entertaining the thought because, well, I thought it wasn't normal. Even now, I feel kind of embarrassed just thinking and writing about it. I know to myself that I want to come out. God, I know that would feel so good, but it's so hard to do. There were times when I wanted to tell someone so bad, anyone that I trust. And I feel so unmovable at those moments, like it's really gonna happen. I'm actually gonna tell someone. But as soon as I start the conversation about what they think towards the LGBT community, tiptoeing around the topic, I feel my confidence constantly shrink. People I trust would suddenly say something that would make me back out at the last minute. And I know they would accept me if I come out, but the tone they use while talking to me about bisexuality, or being gay, or any other gender, reeks so much of condescension. I feel like everything would change if I said something. Is it bad that I don't want to "say something" to them? I just want to leave hints in hopes of them figuring it out by themselves. And when they do, I don't want them to address it. I just want our lives to continue the way it was without them thinking I'm a different person now. Hoping someone would read this, I really feel like I need a safe space and someone to talk to about my sexuality. It's hard figuring everything out by myself.

    A little update.

    Hi, I'm still very busy with unpacking. My birthday is next month so I have to plan for that. I also have to figure out what to get my brother and sister since their birthdays are next month as well. I'm working on my story, the first chapter is almost done. I'm coming out as asexual. I plan to tell my mom, she doesn't like LGBTQ+ but I hope she'll be fine with it. I was planning to come out to my whole family as bi on my birthday but I don't think I'll do that. Bye, for now!
  6. I'm thinking about coming out of the closet as Pan and Trans male, any tips? I'm scared that everyone might tease me or think I'm joking or just hate me.
  7. ok so i wanna come out, i already told my close friends but im thinking about telling my whole school (only when they ask tho) the siblings the parents??? most of my family is homophobic and i dont know if i should come out yet
  8. After a full year of contemplating and getting to know myself, I am a proud bisexual. My close friends know, but my family doesn't (my friends are like my found family. I'm a lot more close and comfortable with them). I want to come out to my family because keeping this from them is so stressful! But I'm worried about their reactions... I don't want to say they're homophobic, but their reactions to topics about the LGBTQ+ community don't always go well... My siblings, are.... Homophobic, yeah. They make rude jokes about the LGBTQ+ community so I don't know if I want to tell them. My mother, bless her, says she would support me if I came out (I am her daughter after all) but she always looks grossed out or like she's going to throw up when I talk about girls dating girls or guys dating guys. I can tell she doesn't mean to be rude, so I do want her to know, but I'm scared as to what her reaction might be... Thoughts?

  10. Hi so my parents are overprotective and react very extremely. I am mostly gay but at my age you can't be completely sure. I can tell my dad isn't fond of LGBTQ+ people and my mom is iffy about it. I am a very shy and anxious person so I could never find out myself.

    My name is Jason. I'm a 17yo trans man, still in school. I present male online and around my friends (who I am out to), obviously dressing like a typical guy on a daily basis. I'd say I probably pass for the most part as long as you don't look at my face, but that's kind of besides the point. I'm neither out to my school nor to my parents, and I wanted to fix that. The thing with my parents is that they're kind of transphobic. I can't really say how transphobic, but they've definitely made comments like "This person is a man—but that's what they want you to think" or "These boys' parents force them to be women" etc. Not to mention they're extremely enbyphobic (though that doesn't exactly concern me personally as I am a binary man—it's still wrong, obviously). Despite all this, I really really want to come out to them and I know how I want to do it (giving them a gender reveal card that says "It's a boy!" before I leave on a school trip, though I'd have to make sure they realize I'm referring to myself so they don't think I'm pregnant or something???), I'm just extremely nervous and I'm not quite sure what exactly I'd want to tell them. I don't even know if it's a good idea, but I'm willing to try. The worst they could do is simply disregard it and reprimand me about it, but I know I probably wouldn't get grounded or anything like that. I really want to start medically transitioning—at the very least get more masculine clothing than the extremely limited amount I have at the moment. For school, I just genuinely have no clue how I'd do that. My entire class isn't exactly garbage, but I wouldn't say they're all that supportive of the LGBT community. They're the "I don't really care if you're straight or gay" kind, I feel. I don't really know how the teachers would be with this cause the vast majority of them don't show their own opinions or beliefs (as that isn't allowed for teachers to do where I live). My friend suggested I e-mail our class's main teacher, but I really don't know what I'd write and what I'd want to do after coming out to literally just one teacher. I don't think she really realizes how mortifying the idea of coming out is to me though (she's ace and her own coming out went really smoothly). I'm looking for advice, maybe tips and experiences from people who have already come out as non-cis to their parents/school, and just ideas of what to say to either when I do actually come out.
  12. So I just came out to my mother today and it was much better than I thought. We had an hour long discussion on the same but she feels that what I am going through is a phase, I am too young to be really sure and we don't have the “queer gene” in our family. While I do appreciate that she listened to me, I really wish she could understand my point of view better and would understand that this isn't just a phase. What could I do to make her more comfortable and accepting of the idea?

  14. Hey everyone! I'm new here, don't know how it works, but i'm gonna give it a try. Im genderfluid, AFAB (assigned female at birth), and my pronouns change. I want to come out to my cisgender straight boyfriend, who doesn't know much about genders and pronouns, He was supportive when i came out as bisexual, but i'm not sure if he will be okay with this and i don't know how to tell him. My lgbt friend told me to not rush it and take my time, but sometimes i feel more enby or even masculine, and everytime he uses she/her pronouns i feel like trowing up (in my native language, we don't have neutral pronouns and use feminine and masculine for almost every word). I don't know what to do, if anyone has any advice, I'm all ears.
  15. I’ve never used this site before, so apologies if I’m doing this wrong lol. I’m really questioning my sexuality right now, and I have been seriously for a few months. I had wondered if I might be gay before, but only really because I hadn’t been able to connect with a male, and honestly just had found them kind of repulsive (no offence!). But I met this girl and I knew straight away that she was cool and I wanted to be friends with her. After seeing her a few times again it quickly turned into a fully obsessive crush. She’s amazing and I was so confused and scared at first, but now after doing a lot of thinking, I’m almost sure I’m not straight, and I don’t dislike the idea. But I still have a lot of problems to consider, like the fact she most likely doesn’t see me that way.
  16. I have n idea how to come out to my homophobic grandparents who i live with. any tips?
  17. I’m bisexual however I am terrified of coming out to my parents. My parents are old-fashioned but I don’t know if that means they are homophobic, that would make coming out to them even harder. I don’t know how to ask if they support the “community”, I’ve been hoping it would just come out naturally but it hasn’t. I need ideas on both figuring out if they are homophobic and actually coming out to them…
  18. So I need help with coming out as bi. I am currently 13 and I want to come out to my mom. My dad is a little homophobic, but they are divorced so if I came out to her I know she wouldn't tell him. The only people I've told are my close friends, sister, and cousin. We've talked about LGBT+ stuff before, so I know she is ok talking about it. I feel like I'm lying to her and keep almost spilling it. How should I do it in a way that she won't freak out?
  19. Hi my name is Mariam but if you can't pronounce my name call me Rainsfall. I'm a beatboxer guitarist and a gamer. I found out I was a lesbian at 12 but kept it in the back of my head but soon these feelings sent signals to my brain. I have homophobic parents and I'm just so afraid to come out to them. They love me so much and If i come out to them they would kick me out the house and I'll have nowhere to go. I told my friends I'm queer but one of them are very angry about it. I cry myself to sleep every day because I don't know what to do anymore my old friend who has been with me since I was 6 disowned me and I'm afraid of everything I don't know what to do anymore. I need help
  20. SeEna


    I’m SeEna, for a while I have thought I was bisexual but never had the courage to tell anyone about it or try and figure out what my sexuality is, because I didn’t know if I wanted to know the answer. Around 2 weeks ago I finally decided to explore my sexuality and now know I am bi. I’ve want to tell someone about how happy I am that I can now know and understand who I am. I do want to tell my friends and family, but I’m trying to find the words/time to tell them. When I think it’s the right time I just chicken out. I’m mostly scared what my family’s reaction will be, my mother supports me in lots of the things I do. Although I think I would have her support, when the conversation of sexualities ever come up wether that be in movies we watch or reading something online about it; she acts so indifferent so it’s hard for me to read what her reaction would be. My father is indifferent as well, my aunt makes homophobic remarks sometimes so I’m starting to wonder if that might be my fathers opinion as well. I believe that my parents wouldn’t stop loving me for coming out, but they might not be supportive. I’m just not sure of what to do at this point, wether I should tell them or just keep it to myself for the time being.
  21. Hey, I’m Asher and I’m nonbinary and pansexual. I’ve finally figured out who I am and I really want to be able to be myself and talk to people about this, but all of my friends and family are homo/bi/transphobic. I want to come out so bad and I really want to do it before next year when I’m going to be studying abroad for a year. What should I do? I know my friends and family won’t react well but I don’t want to keep lying to them or myself anymore… this has been really tiring and stressful , and honestly I kinda just want to get it over with. But is that a good idea??? HELP
  22. Hi, my name is Hannah and i am 12 years old. I read lots of these comments and also saw younger people than me. The thing is that, im scared to come out to my mom — not because im scared that she will not accept me. Im scared because of my age… im so young… what if it is a phase? what if i actually dont like women? what if this is all just to be “popular”. My brain is confused and i dont even know if i want to label myself… because im not sure who i am . I KNOW that i am not straight, for sure. But my brain confuses itsself and makes me want to question EVERYTHING. I think i am bisexual or lesbian. How should i come out? Or when? Sometimes i just have this URGE to tell it to my grandmom, but then i remind myself that “what if never looks at me the same” and then how young i am again… please help, im desperate.
  23. So, just for some short backstory... I've been Pansexual for 2-3 years now. My whole family is VERY homophobic, and i just don't know how to come out. If anyone has advice, then please tell me. Thanks
  24. Hello!! My name is Jadon, I am 13 (nearly 14), gay, and headed to High School. Currently single, have never dated a boy but I have asked multiple guys out. One being straight (and would later on proceed to grope one of my friends boobs) and the other just didn't want a relationship (he was bisexual). I've had no luck in guys but I'm hoping it gets better in High School. I saw a bunch of possibly gay guys at registration so I'm just hoping for the best. I am out to all of my friends and family. By family. I mean the people I live with including my sisters (the little one is 7 so I'm probably gonna have to tell her again when she actually knows what gay means) and my parents. Right now, the most supportive person in my family is my big sister. She's 21 and has been the only one to address my sexuality in a good way. However my parents are a different story. My Dad is straight up homophobic. He says he doesn't care but I know deep down he hates it. He once yelled at me because I was posting selfies with the caption "Happy Pride!!!". He said stuff like "nobody cares about Pride" and "Nobody needs to know". "Stop acting all proud if you haven't told everyone". "There's nothing to be proud about". That's all stuff he's said to me. My Mom is slightly homophobic but she's still supportive. If I had to put my family on a scale based on homophobia, left being super homophobic and right being super supportive, my Dad would be on the left. My big sister would be on the right but not fully. She'd still be somewhat towards the left, and my Mom would be somewhere in the middle. I'm looking to tell my Grandmother but I don't know if she's homophobic. I think she is though because we were having a conversation about trans people and she kept saying stuff about how trans women aren't real women. So I already know she's transphobic but I'm not sure if she's homophobic or not. Anyways, that's me and that's my life so far. Thank you for your time and have a good day!!
  25. Ok, so after awhile of questioning myself, I have realized that I am Bi, and I want to come out to everyone, but my parents are pretty conservative Christians and I have no idea how they would respond. For context, I am a 14 year old girl who is also a Christian, and is homeschooled, so I don't have any friends that aren't straight.
