• Guess What?

    To all of my friends and family: I’M GAY! and at the age of 17 and being a senior in high school, I am *finally* okay with this, after struggling with it for the past 6 years. I wish I could tell you this because it’s horrible lying all the time to everyone around me, but I’m too worried that you’ll reject me, as stupid as that is. I can’t risk losing all the people that are important to me, and I think that after essentially lying to you for years, you all won’t exactly take kindly to this. Even though you think otherwise, the main reason I can’t wait to graduate high school is so that I can live my life openly. In college, I won’t have to worry about someone telling my twin brother that I’m a lesbian and that in turn getting back to my parents. Even though I live in a very liberal place, I’m still hiding in fear within my own small community. I want you to know and think of me for who I am as a *person*, not for my sexuality.

      You may not have come out to your family and friends today, but just took the first step to the rest of your life. Congratulations! All of us are out here waiting for you with open arms. Keep being you and remember, you’re never alone and it will definitely get even better from here!

      Congratulations! This is a big step! There is no shame is being homosexual, no matter what the people with hatred in their hearts say. Live your life being you, I’m excited for you 🙂

      oh how I wish you luck! I may not know you but I support you one hundred percent and I’m proud of you for finally coming to terms with yourself. You are beautiful if only for that reason.
