    ... my cousin is gay and she goes to the same school as me, and idk I find it a bit weird when two people who are related are not straight for some reason.
    People will look back and say oh yeah there were two gay people in my year ... they were both related.
    If one or both of my siblings were gay it would make it harder.

    Actually even if she wasn't lesbian, I still find it hard for variety of different reasons, but the fact she is makes it so weird. Idk why.

    Why did I think this was about the EU

    I don't think people will care OP. I think you're over-thinking it.

    It's fine, you shouldn't care about what people think. Obviously, there are going to be some people who are going to be against you but you shouldn't give 2 shits. If you want to tell people, you can. If you don't then you do not need to. It's all up to what you think is best for you.

    You can't let people's views stop you from being yourself. Chances are they won't even think of it like that and you'll always regret not taking the opportunity to come out when you did. If someone was to come out to you right now, would you judge them? Obviously you wouldn't and at least a majority will be like that too.

    Because YOU are the one that is coming out you feel like everything is going to be against you, but I promise it's not the case!
