I want to come out as Transgender to my family but I am unsure of how they will react and how to do it. 

Hmmmmmm, well for starters, do you know if they're accepting of the community or homophobic?

Knowing that makes it a bit easier when coming out

Heyy @Sky1anders, I am Luie one of the Support Mentors with Ditch the Label. Welcome to our community, we're glad to have you with us 😄

It's such wonderful news about your identity, Thank you for sharing this with us. Wanting to share with family is a major step and @_Kai_, does have a good point, would it be safe for you to come out? If not, then we'll discuss on what the next steps possible could be.

hi, i'm trans too! first of all, is your family safe to come out to? if you feel like they might put you in danger of any kind, you don't have to come out. always do it on your own terms, when you feel safe and feel like it's the right moment. if you wanna do it but don't feel safe, make sure you have somewhere to go where you'll be safe.

if you think they wouldn't put you in danger, try to arrange it in a way that you'll feel comfortable in, for example, would you prefer doing it to a big gathering or just some people privately? then you could explain how you feel and how you'd prefer to be addressed.

coming out is an inherently stressful experience, so it's okay if you feel nervous! just know that you're not alone <3
