>>>Have You Come Out as Trans/Non-Binary/Gender Fluid? SHARE HERE!>>>


Recommended Posts



It's so important to have references of other's people's experiences with speaking to people about gender. Many of us wonder about how to bring up the topic, and fear how it might affect their lives. This is where you come in. We would love for your to share your experience(s) so we can gain knowledge for ourselves... and to know we're not alone.

I came out to both my parents seperatly about me being Non-binary.


I don't really remember how it all came along because it was during or shortly after the divorce.

​​​​​​My mom, without being irrespectful doesn't really understand.

My dad on the other hand uses both genders when talking to me and the first time he called me miss (he opened the door and said "ladies first") I felt really happy because I knew he understood!

i came out as a transmasc to my mom before but made it sound like im a binary transboy. that was pretty early on and im still in the process of figuring it out but i wanted my mom to know abt my queer identity for whatever reason. she accepted it pretty well but she told me she also felt the same when shes my age implying that what im experiencing is just a phase which im not happy about

a few months later i have to remind her that i prefer masculine and neutral terms and that she shouldnt use she/her and feminine remarks on me since im not comfortable with it anymore; she just told me that shes trying [even though she havent used my preferable pronouns nor honorific once] and i just shut up about the whole thing 

after i discovered that im just a masculine nonbinary i didnt tell my mom and instead i decided to tell my dad about it since hes still very new to this stuff. ive only told my mom about my queer identity and not him so i suppose ill bite. hes very accepting though still confused

overall both my parents are fine with it but my mom just takes a longer time to adapt while my dad is already starting to use my preferable pronouns and honorific so thats good

im only like 30% out.

im out to my best friend, who's actually queer herself, and she accepts me and uses my preferred name too!

im also out to the GSA at school, and occasionally to teachers if they ask for name n pronouns


it honestly is contextual bc if i came out to my parents now they'd be unaccepting id wager so im not risking a lot

if i move out for uni/college ill be a bit more out i bet

so yeah not rlly but am trying


im quite indifferent to my birthname (not the feminine terms tho, those suck to hear. hate being called a maam) so i can hold out
