Hey @Bee_Is_Yes

Welcome to our community. I'm one of the digital mentors here and I give advice to those who reach out to us.

Thank you for sharing your backstory with us. I'm sorry to hear that your whole family is very homophobic - how are you feeling about this? Before I give you advice, can I check, do you feel ready to come out? It's totally fine to wait if you don't - there really is no rush. Also, could coming out put you in danger, like getting kicked out or being abused? If so, then it's best to wait until you can move out or at least make sure you have somewhere else to stay if things become too challenging. What do you think? Let me know and then I can give you more advice.

Hi so Im bi and the other week I told my mum and this is the third time I told her the old times she said it was just a phase. My family is also very homophobic and I find it best to bring it up for example maybe bring up a celebrity that is Pan or something just to see there reaction. If there not very happy then you don't have to come out straight away! There is no rush. If you want more help, we are here for you :)

Hey @ljack280307

Thanks for offering your help to @Bee_Is_Yes - that's kind of you. It's great that you told your mum, especially with your family being very homophobic. Did she react any differently when you told her for the third time? It's pretty common for parents to react by saying that it's just a phase. Over time, by sticking to your word and showing that you're serious, the parents tend to come around to the news. So, i'm curious to know if she maybe sees it differently now it's the third time you've told her.

      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.
