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.
I decided to come out to some of the people around me because I wanted to live as myself, and I definitely had enough of making unnecessary lies. I made my final decision after reading a book, written by a gay rights activist O Young Wen Feng.
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.
