How did you come out?

    Out of curiosity, I haven't come out to my family yet see.

    They're fully supportive to gay people and always tell me and my sister to never be afraid of being gay, I haven't told them because I don't see my sexuality as anything that needs discussing, and to be honest I hate myself for being gay, I cover it up as much as I can.

    I haven't come out as bi yet. its nobodies fault that they are attracted the opposite or same sex. think of it this way: 643 other species are both homosexual and heterosexual, most apes(including us humans) have engaged in homosexual activity.

    I haven't come out to anyone outright. I'm still confused about where I stand tbh like I've been with both guys and gals and enjoy both but in very different ways (physically with guys but the emotional connection seems to come only with women). So my two best friends know that I'm struggling a bit atm, and they're really supportive... even if it's not helping I'm so not low key crushing on one of them, which they don't know, and she drives me crazy. But oh well. I kinda wanna talk to my mum or my sister about it because it does feel like I'm hiding something from them but my dad and brother just make comments about being gay that make me uncomfortable saying anything at home. I'm about to live abroad for a year so I'm going to take that as a time to explore more and do some figuring out and hopefully feel much happier with myself when I go back to uni afterwards. I'm not going out my way to hide anything though, I don't feel the need to have to come out to anyone (don't have to do it if you're straight so why if anything else), and hopefully there will come the day where I'll just go to my parents oh yeah this is my girlfriend or something. It's hard but it feels so liberating within me to even think about what could be, so I think a lot is to do with confidence about it all. Solidarity vibes though [s]hugs[s/]
