    OK, I am a bisexual 16 year old and I am trying to come out.

    I have told my family and close friends but I have no idea how to tell, like, everyone else.

    How did you guys do it?

    Define "everyone else".
    If it is random people on the street, do people come up to you and say "I'm heterosexual" completely out of nowhere?

    Is it weird im a girl that i watch gay porn (men) im very confused help 🙈🙈

    noooo its the best type

    I'm pretty open about my bisexuality, but I don't go around telling 'everyone else'. If someone asks, I'll tell them. Or if the topic comes up I'll offer my opinion and my story.

    I never really came out to "everyone else". Once I had spoken to friends/family and realised that the people who mattered knew and supported me I didn't really care what others had to think. I have mentioned it to other people, most who just go 'oh' and continue the conversation, but most of the time there was something in the discussion that made referencing my sexuality worth it.

    If you feel like you would benefit from a big come out you could always make a post on social media (depending on how tolerant the people you're connected to I suppose but I've seen these go well and you have friends to back you up) but don't feel that it is necessary or expected!
