Tips for Coming Out as lesbian, gay, bisexual
Don’t feel pressured.
Don’t label yourself if you don’t want to.
You don’t have to choose between your faith and your sexuality.
Most religions have groups for their lesbian, gay and bisexual followers. Go online to find a group near you. Read how other people came out.
Tell one person.
Forget the stereotypes.
You’ll be protected at school, college and university.
Think about the positives.
Some people do have negative experiences.
Give people time.
Start living! You will be amazed at how free you will feel once you have come out.
Consider the timing. Determine whether this is the right time. Be in a good place in your life. Be realistic and anticipate what their reactions will be. Arm yourself with answers ahead of time. Be ready for the “hellfire and damnation” argument. Stay calm, even if your parents aren’t. Their approval or permission is not required. Know when and how to make your exit. In the end, know that they love you.
