Telling My Loved Ones I'm Bisexual


Recommended Posts

Hi, My name is Jez! I currently came out as Bisexual and I haven't gotten to the point of telling my family. I'm very nervous and scared of what they're going to say and how they're going to act, I don't want to be criticized for how I identify and I'm glad that I found this safe space to help me through this hard time. Please help me!πŸ˜₯

I'm glad you reached out here, Firstly, congrats! This is HUGE and I want to say thank you for sharing it with us here on community. Coming out as bisexual is a significant and courageous step for sure. It's completely understandable that you're feeling nervous and scared about telling your family. Opening up about your identity can be a vulnerable and challenging experience, especially when we worry about how our loved ones will react.

I'm here to support you and this is a safe space to express your thoughts and feelings. You do deserve acceptance and understanding for who you are. I do want to check with you about your safety. This is a priority when it comes to disclosing any information to people close to us. So, would you happen to know what views your family might hold when it comes to the LGBTQI+ community? Also, have you shared about you coming out to anyone else?Β

Hi, I'm Bre and I'm bisexual but don't know how to tell my parents. My Step Mom doesn't support people who are bisexual so I'm nervous about telling her.

I'm happy to hear that other people relate to my problems with coming out, I'm lost to be honest and I don't know what to do.
