At school, I'm known as "the lesbian" or "gay bestie" or something, and I'm well-known for being a lesbian. Most people at my school are cis and straight, but I've struggled to figure out who I am, and coming out has had the side effects of some minor homophobia. Most of the time, it's not a big deal, and people might not even know that they're being homophobic, but some of them do know it.

People try to be supportive, but I feel constantly judged for who I am, and whenever I talk about it to my straight friends, they seem uncomfortable or like they want to change the subject. Meanwhile, they're also the ones bombarding me with questions that I'm not prepared to answer and I don't know what to do about it.

If anyone knows how this feels and has some support for me I would greatly appreciate it. It's hard to be someone in the LGBTQIA+ community.

yep. came out to my school that i am gay and that has been my greatest regret in life. im growing up in a biblical area and homosexuality and the lgbtqia+ community in a whole is considered a sin. some people are cool about it and my friends are supportive and keep some other secrets for me. however, i have experinced homophobia because of the people who arent cool about the lgbtqia+ community. it does get very annoying and it is hard being in the lgbtqia+ community.
