Going to come out - July 28th 2012, 10:02 AM

So my best friend is coming back from a trip tomorrow and I really have just been itching to get it off my chest that at the very least I'm not straight. The past week or so I've just felt like getting it out, but I want to talk to her about it first so yeah... Basically I'm going to talk to her soon. Eventually I'll bring it up with my parents. I know for a fact my parents are going to be okay with it. I've brought up lots of LGBTQ issues, and they're amazing about it. (Not to mention they're the most supportive people I've ever known). I also just learned that one of my uncles is gay (but he's in the closet still).
I don't know. It just sort of hit me. Like I've had these urges to just tell my parents while we're having a casual conversation, and I'm not even worked up about it at all.

I'd say go for it, and it's situations like these where you discover who's really your friend. If she's a true friend she'll be supportive and/or accepting no matter what, and in this case you have it even better because your parents are also with you and there if you need any extra encouragement. Good luck

Hey I'm glad to hear you're coming out! I hope everything goes well! And if she's your friend she won't mind.

Some things are beautiful because they are un-obtainable <3
