I'm a 16 year old girl who could use some encouragement!
I've just recently come to terms that I'm gay. I came out
to one girl at school who is gay and she helped me by taking
me to a gay pride event. Of course I had to do this w/o my
mom knowing. So, I told her I was hanging out w/ a new
friend. anyway...we became friends and talked a lot over
the summer and that was mostly through email. Well, my mom found
those emails and some poems I had written. Lets just say,
that was really bad! Well, I'm not allowed to even talk to
my friend anymore and my mom dragged my aunt and uncle and youth
pastor into it. It was SO bad! I was not ready for my family
to find out at all. I was still trying to figure myself out.
So now, I have no one around my age to talk to. And I have no
way of going back to that gay pride even this year. My car is...
yea, won't go there. lol But I really enjoyed it last year!
I would love to maybe meet someone there or just make new friends.
My friends have no idea about me and would be shocked if they
found out. I'm a "good Christian girl". So, if you have any
advice, I'd love to hear it!
Thanks everyone!! :)
