Perhaps We Should Leave's picture

Well...

Considering that I (inaccurately) came out as gay in middle school (the only out kid) that probably counts. Do check your capitalization, though.

But I have promises to keep,
and miles to go before I sleep,

Um

Well, my school does have a GSA, but other than the odd survey they hand out, I'm not really sure what they do, nor have I ever gone, but I hear all the people in it are straight anyway, so I have better things to do.
Besides that, am I "out"? Well, my facebook says I'm a male interested in men, and other than that, if people are curious and ask, I'll tell them, but I've never really pulled the dramatic reveal.
So I guess, we do have a GSA who I'm guessing wouldn't really care about my gayness, but then, neither do I, so the point is fairly moot.

TO Um&Well...

I understand you are both scared and both not sure of what to think on the T part but, i do know that it is hard coming out in a school that there is no GSA. Wether your in a GSA or not maybe you should say what you feel participate in The Day of Silence and just be yourself also if you haven't told your parents and you think they will support you or you know they will support you then tell them first before you come out maybe it will help and be easier. For Perhaps We Should being gay and in middle school is hard coming out especially if it is in a small town were a lot of people would look down on you trust me but the easiest way to come over that is to start by talking to a trusted adult or your parents if not your friends. I know this from experience when i came out that I was bi I was called lesbo,lestube,dyke,lesbian slut, and it hurt but I overcame that by talking to my parents and my friends that supported me,So if I can overcome that then so can you.

Appreciation

I appreciate the sentiment, but I graduated high school last year, so I'm doing just fine. My problems have nothing to do with being gay. But thanks for the kindness.
