coming out

Ricky-chan72's picture

first post

so recently I've been spending more time in silence, thinking, because I'm coming out to my parents soon. I know for a fact that it will probably be one of the worst days of my life, my parents are *extremely* religious and rather homophobic, but I feel like it's now or never. I'm tired of living a lie and telling them shit that isn't true so they'll leave me alone.

A Letter

A Letter

As I sit writing on a tear tarnished piece of paper.
I struggle to find words that express the feelings that lie in me.
The confusion, angriness, sadness, and the joyfulness all pour out on the paper.
I brainstorm as I try to figure the right words to help you understand me.
I look out the windows to a tree, the leaves green as it always have been.
I look at the majesty of life.

First personal coming out.

Okay. So I told the first person (who isn't my lesbian bestfriend/ex girlfriend) that I am infact bisexual.

C knew because well, she's a lesbian. And there was just comfort in that. But we had our relationship, our perks and our flaws. And it came down to just allowing it to be open. She's out and I'm like a retarded moral wreck, so I'm slowly (but surely) just trying to get out there.

Signs of Change

After about a year and a 1/4 of reluctance I've finally come out somewhere where I was a bit afraid to.

Last Two Weeks of High School: Coming out?

So... I was talking to may gay friend who graduated last year, and I was mad at him because he didn't come out in high school. I mean, jeez, he would have made me so much happier if we both knew about each other. And he could have been a role model for so many kids at school.

Out to One More

Yesterday I hung out with T. T is one of my good friends, the one who made all the jokes about me being gay even though she didn't know. I've mentioned her and her jokes before. The jokes are funny, actually, not offensive. It was just wierd since I hadn't confirmed my being gay with her. But anyway, I had it on my agenda to tell her I was, but the right time never really came.

Coming Out: Am I Ready?

For a good few months I've wanted to come out so badly. Even more so with the Day of Silence, seeing that the school is hostile but with that glimmer of hope. Also, reading Keeping You A Secret scared me, but also gave me courage.

I'm 20. I'm gay. I can't come out.

Hello. This is my first post here and I just joined the forum. Let me start off by saying i'm very confused. Not sexually but I am confused as to how to approach other people with my sexuality. I'll say this, I've been gay ever since I can remember - even when I was a young lad, not even in my teens yet. I've always been attracted to guys.

refrigerator couches and car stereos

Major coming out #2. Tim convinced me to come out to my friend Alex, who I've literally known forever. It scared me because she can be a little homophobic and she is just so oblivious about a lot of things, like, I look really gay and if I never told her, she'd still think I was the straightest straight in straight world. Ha.. lame. Anyway so this is how it happened...

untraditional coming out plan

Ok I need some input from you guys. I'm so sick of hiding who I am and I was thinking of editing my myspace honestly by putting what I really like. eg. boyish girls etc. But still just leaving my orientation blank.

The day I came out

About a half hour ago, I came out to two of my best friends. [Unfortunately, the third one wasn't there] I left it to the absolute last minute [which I wish I hadn't so we had more time to talk about it or something] but I'm so glad I did it.

Some spontaneous coming out

Ok I have just told another friend,thats bringing the total to two,that know of my gay tendancies!Go me,lol!My friend who I told a while back has been encouraging me to tell more people.
So just a short while ago I was chatting to my friend online and decided to just do it.I always thought it was a bad idea to come out online rather than in person.But I was just like dammit i'll do it.So I did.
