Well, my brother never came out, we just all know and are cool with it. We love him so it wasn't a big deal, and i knew all along. I was just waiting for him to be strong enough to accept it himself!

I have a great group of friends for the msot part. Okay guys grab some popcorn this takes some explaining.
Family: My grandparents (who I live with) were cool with it. I have a gay aunt. She and her spouse knwo and they were happy but my mom and dad don't knwo and their won't. (they wouldn't care.)
My friends were cool with it and everyone in my group slowly started to admit it. Except one. She's a homophobic and flipepd and refused to talk to me for days says it was my fault. Funyn thing is I;m her best friend after her boyfriend.

I started to tell my friends I was gay when I was 15/16
They all accepted it and where happy for me! Although one cried, but that was cause she was upset I didnt tell her first
At this point though, I dont think I'll be telling the parents I'm gay. My brother was gay, so I have seen their reaction already to having a gay son. Dad freaked and even on holiday was in bookshops trying to find the reason why his son had turned gay, and my mum refused to talk to him, even now i dont think she would acknowlege it if i said to her.
But at the moment I'm happy with the way things are

I confessed to my friends and they are cool with it, because they're so awesome. My family will never know because there was an incident with me and my mom and my mom freaked over it. (No, I don't want to say what it was...) My family isn't homophobic but they don't take "unnatural" things well. >< ARG!

I came out to all of my friends and my parents. At first it's hard because you're nervous about what their reaction might be, but the outcome can either make you or break you. Just remember that in your life, it's only important how you feel, or at least that's what truly counts. People are just narrow minded.

I was brought up differently than alot of ppl. My mom came out when I was about 11, and I was brought up with the idea that:

"Love knows no age, sex, race... love is love, regardless"

So my coming out was actually on a school trip when I was 14 i guess. It was the first time I actually said I liked boys. It was a choir trip to New York and I was hanging out with like 5 straight guys, 2 bi girls, and our chaperone (sp) was a lesbian. The guys got all quiet and like oh... they were a little scared, but I had one of them tell me that he was afraid of gay people before me. He became friends with me and then I told him I was gay and it was when he realized that gay people were okay, but he didn't understand before and was scared.

My coming out to my mom was interesting... it was me telling her I asked a boy to prom but he said no. No big story. I was one of the major reasons she came out. If she couldn't be honest to herself how could she expect me to be. so yeah ^_^

I also just want to say that I was talkin to a friend in HS about a guy that I met, and I was a little intersted.
She was like... ummm, so your bi?
I was like.... ummm hun... I'm on your dance company, I like boys LOL
I found that one funny

Parents... that's something that's in the future for me... I'm sure they'd be ok with it. They just have to be right? But I don't want to risk it just yet.

Though knowing the way that parent's work they probably know already. :lol:


There is a funny quote from Elvira Kurt (pretty much the canadian Ellen)
Theres 3 stages of your coming out.
First everybody else knows.
Then you find out
And finally your parents clue in

Alot of the time parents may suspect, but they deny it most of the time.

I'd be surprised if you are know as "that lesbian", i don't think i've been once refered to as "the gay guy".



I'd say that depends on how you are.
My friend is known as the F-ing Faggot.
I'm the little baby homo (line from shortbus) even though i'm like the oldest LOL

If anybody calls us a faggot or anything we take it as a compliment and everybody we know finds it very amusing...
So you may be known as that, but in my case its our choice

Before i went forward with my transition i came out to just about everone that mattered to me in my life, including my mother. There was one instance where my best friend accused me of lying, but her and I are friends again. No one has rejected me, even my mother and for that i feel extremely lucky. I think my mum accepts me for who I am but i think she wants to grasp exactly why someone would do what i am doing. But she and all my friends still love me.

This thread seems to be dying a bit... *revives*

Any who~

I first came out to a few of my friends. They didn't mind, and truthfully I don't think they even care. But when I was going to tell my mum I had to practice what I was going to say over and over again for a whole week. And finally I came out and said 'Mum, I like girls'. She didn't take it to well. She thinks there's only such a thing as pure gay or pure straight, and no in between. So whenever I mention anything about another girl, she freaks and starts repeating how 'bi-sexuals' don't exist. It's like she's waiting for something to hit me on the head so I can realize I'm staight. Like that'll ever happen.

you're lucky.... most gays and bi's get into really big trouble if they come out because their parents would send them away or sometimes disown them
