Coming-out

Stephanie 1

I am 17, and though i have never had a boyfriend or girlfriend, i know i am bisexual. I haven't told any of my close friends yet, i think i am just waiting for the right moment. At least that's what i tell myself. I am nervous even though i know they'll accept it.

Doug 1

I am a 19 year old college student... I've had 3 sexual partners in my life, 2 being guys and 1 being a girl. ... I plan on keeping my masculinity strong because I like it and I want people to know that gay/bisexual people are not what society sees them as. We are people that are just the same as a heterosexual person that want equality and not to throw it in their faces or anything but I do believe that homosexuality has been out as long as heterosexuality has!

George 1

Hello, my name is George. I am 16 years old and I am gay. I dont know how my family Will react? How my friends will react? I have attempted to find a friend on Facebook who has similar love for my idol Lady GaGa ( who's fans have love
for the gay community). I intend to tell them that I am gay just to have that relief.

Coming out has always been a taboo in Asia. In my community, it is thought of as a selfish act which will bring nothing but harm to the people around the person. The coming out came more easily then I have thought. My friends were really cool and didn't really mind. If they did mind they were decent enough not to show it. Now I'm working on coming out to my family.

Vince M

It all started when I was 13 years old... I started to think I'm gay, I had no reason at all to think this. I went to talk to my guidance counsellor at my school and she really helped me. Even though she told me I should give myself some time to see where things would go and that there is nothing wrong with being gay I still kept saying to myself that I didn't want to be gay. After a few months, I came out to one of my sisters and also my mother. I have two other sisters but I never did come out to them (I don't really know why). However, I haven't told my brother yet. We don't get along that well and I just don't feel the time is right.

Thomas 1

I'm going to start by telling you all that I am gay but still in the closet I can't come out at the moment to my parents because when my older brother did they kicked him out i shoud say that I am 16.... At school only my close friends know i'm gay and not one of them would betray my trust because they know what happened to the last person to come out as openly gay, they were badly beaten and then consequently had to move away from here.

Dakotah

My name's Dakotah, and I'm bisexual. I'm currently 14 years old, and I have a boyfriend. I have been with girls before, two last year, who were both my best friends at one point. A teacher informed my mom and one night she asked me about it. I told her I was bi, and she flipped out. She kept telling me, "You're 13! You don't know what you are! You're just going through a stupid phase." But I knew I wasn't. Who is she to tell me who I am?

Lauren 1

Im 14. Ive known for a while im bisexual. Ive dated boys in the past and sometimes it feels right but sometimes it doesnt. I told one of my best friends but shes a loud mouth and loves to gossip, i thought id regret telling her cause i thought she'd tell the school and im not ready to come out to everyone yet, but she hasnt told anyone, Then i told my bestest friend and she understood and shes supportive and listens and helps if im down with anything.

Ashlyn

Im Ashlyn and I'm 16 and im a lesbain. When I was 14 i started realizing that i liked girls, I tried to talk myself out of it for the past two years. I thought if i dated enough guys or found a guy good enough it would change who i am because my family is very religious and I am scared they will shut me out if they knew. I dont know how to tell my family and i dont want to get kicked out of my house and I want to tell some of my friends but I still have two years of high school and I dont know if i can go from social butterfly to "that lesbain girl".

Caitlyn

I am a 15 year old bisexual, and my entire life I thought I was completely straight. ...there was a new girl who transferred into my school 2 years ago and as we became good friends, I found that I had a crush on her. I got over my shyness and told her the truth and we started dating shortly after that. We keep it a secret from our parents who are extremely homophobic but after telling one friend and gaining a favorable reaction, we told the rest of our friends and they were more than happy to support us.
