How would you come out?

How did you come out of the closet to your friends and family? How do they feel about it?

i told my parents when i was 14, they were fine with it. i just kind of did the awkward "i have something to tell you" thing, and it wasn't really an issue. my mum took a while before she, like, actually got it, but it was fine.

i didn't really need to come out to my friends - i started a new school when i was 16 and it was just kind of "welp, looks like there's a new queer kid in class", and then i met most of my new friends through the tiny gay scene in town, so everyone always knew. at my old school before that i would blurt stuff out occasionally so they all knew as well, i'm pretty sure.

My friends were pretty accepting of it. My closest friends actually told me they knew I was bi when I went to talk to them about it, lol.

My mom and grandmother, that was a different story. They came home early from an appointment one day and found me in the shower with my 'friend' (girlfriend). ^^;; They were really cool about it, though. Considering my mom is into women, I feel like I had it pretty easy.

I just didn't. People figured it out after I started referring to partners as different genders.

It's never really been a secret with the exception of my parents. I decided not to tell my parents until I wasn't financially dependent on them because I wasn't sure how they'd react. And now I'm in a relationship with a man so it's not really an issue.

I had to actually come out twice.

16: I had told the staff at the group home where I lived I wanted to tell my mother I was bisexual (or so I thought) and that I wanted them there out of fear she would be angry with me. We went to McDonald's (of all places) And I was like: I got something to tell you... When I told her she seemed fine. Found out later she hated me for it.

21: I had done research, and realized I wasn't Bisexual, but PANsexual. I didn't plan to tell mom and dad about it, but mom had to make a mean comment saying that one in the family was* enough. I pretty much shot back to her that I would have a hell lot more experience than her due to being PANsexual. She actually believed me...*facepalm* (I know I won't have more, but the fact she believed me...)

I'm just glad my sister, husband and father accept this about me, now if only my mother would.
