How Do I Come Out?!?!


Recommended Posts

Ok, so basically I am a 13 year old kid called Alex and I want to come out. I am bisexual and my parents have always said to me I can date who I want. They would be fine with it, it is just that I get kind of anxious talking. How should I come out to them? Like if they are watching TV should I just walk in and say? Like, I am kind of lost here. I think I am ready and I really want to tell them for Pride Month but like would I tell that at dinner or like where and when? Sry for the trouble, I also have another question. How do I come out to my REALLY close friends also? I feel like they will be accepting but one of them I am not sure about. I have another friend that is bi and only told him. Should I come out with him around? Should I text my friends in a group chat? (basically how do I tell friends and fam that I am bi).

Hey @atmf011

Welcome to our community. I'm one of the digital mentors here and I give advice to our members who reach out to us. It's great to hear that you want to come out and that your parents have always said you can date who you want. I totally get your nerves - even though you're highly likely to have a positive experience, it's still pretty daunting, and that's perfectly normal to feel. I guess there are loads of different ways to come out, but I'mΒ wondering, would you rather do it face-to-face or write a letter/message/email? People find that not doing it face-to-face helps with their nerves. Let me know about this for coming out to both your friends and parents, and then we can go from there.

Speak soonΒ πŸ‘

Hey @atmf011

I guess you could still write them a letter and leave it for them to read when you go out? Also, for your friends, I guess you could message them? It might work better doing it 1:1 though rather than the whole group at the same time. What do you think?

Ok, I think I will do it like that with my parents. I may even bake a cake and leave a note on it lol. I might still tell all of my friends at the same time bc I already told one and I only have 2 other friends (lol). Anyways, tysm!
