YOU

Young, Out, and Understanding

BE TRUE, BE YOU

Straight Outa Closet

Ohhh, the closet. Such a familiar place to us queers. We've all been there in one way or another. We've all been through that feeling of holidng in a secret or two. To have the courage to come out of that place is a liberating and beautiful experience. Profess your true identity to the world is the gate way to living freely and honestly. That being said, coming out is a tricky and nuanced process.

As creators of this project, we ourselves have shared the same common "struggle" as our fellow queer youths. Albeit common, this experience is an extremely pesonal one, unique to every individual. Some have it harder than others and some never really have to do it. There's no one way to come out to the world, and there is definitely no right time to come out either. We all do it at our own pace. Some of us never stops coming out. And even though it is exciting, safety is still the first priority. But, for what its worth, this space right here is created to help those who need a little help. It is hate-proof and perfect for first-timers who are getting used to their sexuality. Try it out! Tell us your truth!

  • Bisexual, genderfluid

    Caitlin - British Columbia

    A few months ago I began questioning my sexuality, which led to me discovering that I’m bisexual. A few weeks ago I started questioning my gender and not too long ago I discovered I’m genderfluid.

  • Non-binary panromantic asexual

    Parker - Ocala

    I’ve come out to my friends and my grandma, but I told her I was bi (because I’m not explaining pansexuality to her and it’s easier, but ye) she doesn’t nessicarily support but she’s ok with it. Just recently figured out I was ace though, it’s so much clearer now and I feel confident in myself for once. :)

  • Lesbian

    Emma - Tampa

    I have questioned my sexuality for years now but I think I am gay.

  • Bisexual

    Siska - Belgium

    I came out recently and mostly had positive reactions. I feel more me, like I don't have to hide anymore. I'm thankful for living in Belgium, where there aren't many homophobes :)

  • Asexual/Aromantic

    Lo - Florida

    I came out to most people a while ago, however people still - after several years - keep telling me it’s just a phase. My family acts supportive but as soon as we are around other people they tell them I’m going through a phase. Some of my childhood friends are still trying to convince me I’m straight. I’m not quite sure what to do about this, but I am not going to stop being me because of it.

  • Enby-Gay

    Ren! - Bay Area

    i came out as gay pretty early on, but realized i had more and more problems with my gender. My senior yr of hs i cut my hair, came out, and finally have been able to be truly happy as myself. Always surround urself with good friends!
