Danilo *tousle your hair*

I only told someone I liked boys once when I was asked why I was reading Attitude
And another time when I knew he was and I kinda expressed my infatuation towards him

I don't think I will blurt it out like that out of nowhere. Wait when they see who I hold hands with and they will know.

There is nothing 'gay' about crying or being emotional. All people have emotions and it's sad that some people have to repress them in order to satiate their fragile masculinity.

Your sister sounds lovely very happy for you that you have someone so supportive.

We were just walking through the snow (post cheap student union drinking of course) and I just felt so empowered to tell her and her reaction was just laughter at first. She couldn't believe I thought it would be such a big deal that could affect our friendship.

To this day, she is still my best friend and the most wonderful support. I encourage everyone to open up to a friend if you don't feel like your family are as easy to approach. Your friend will be there to support you through further coming out, bad relationships, crazy sex experiences

To all the little gay babies on here I would like to assure you than in almost every case it does get better. There are wonderful people in the world who are open and supportive, and I'm always here to listen/give some advice if anyone needs it

This thread is about coming out stories, it should be for people looking for encouragement and for people to share their coming-out stories. I am sure a lot of them already know how their parents, or how parents in general may react to their children being gay, which is why encouragement or similar experience is sought here.
I think it's the best if you can just delete all the off-topic posts. I'm pretty sure most of us wont mind. This thread was really a great read until 2-3 days ago

Re: Coming out...

Since everyone is telling their story here's mine...

When I was 19 my parents one day decided (I still would like to know what triggered them) to nose around my PC and they found certain sites on my internet chronology (). That's how they found out my sexuality. They confronted me almost immediately after the discovery and it was really tough. Not because of them. I was lucky enough to have a progressive mother (her music icons were 90% gay or something like Madonna ) and a conservative/religious but understanding dad. They were genuinely both only worried about my happiness and well-being.
My problem was I didn't really want to accept that I was gay.
I was non-stop bullied since elementary school and kids (and later teens) always called me gay instead of saying "lame" "loser" "different" etc. and I had associated the word with these kind of negative things. My self esteem was less than zero because of it and I couldn't face that "distorted" truth.
But even if talking with my parents was a trauma in a way it brought me to reveal my homosexuality to my 2 closest friends (I had to speak to someone about what was happening). And they were also totally fine with it (although a bit surprised). The same thing happened with the relatives some years later. None said anything bad. In the end I've never had any real problem with the people close to me. The only person I had to convince and accept was myself. It became easier and easier as the time was passing by and I was finally able to overcome it completely when I met my first boyfriend.
