Any really good coming out stories?
I always hear of terrible coming out stories which include being disowned, unfriended and the likes.
Anyone have any stories that work out well in the end?
For me, I came out to my mam and she wasawful. Made me go back into the closet, hid me away and made my life hell.
Then I had enough, moved in with my dad and now i'm happier than ever. Everything happens for a reason
my mom was like 'oh okay but you still have to wash the dishes today'
Dad asked me if I had a boyfriend yet and I said no but he didn't believed me… It was kind of funny at that time lol
Well, I came out to a close friend, and he was surprised and said "Wow! That's so cool," which was the most pleasant reaction so far. I felt happy and complemented him by saying that I always thought of him as kind-of cute, and he instantly leaned forward and gave me a little kiss on the lips. I blushed and he laughed, and said that he was flattered.
He isn't gay/bi to my knowledge, and that was just a spontaneous friendly gesture, and I loved it :love:
I am an Indian in my 30s living in the US for the past 10 years. India is a fairly conservative country and gay men stay in the closet and lead a double life. When my mom started pressuring me to get married and started looking to find me a perfect girl for an arranged marriage, I came out to her. She wanted me to go to a therapist and find a cure. I obliged, travelled to India and met the therapist just to make her happy. Behind closed doors, the doc told me that there is nothing to be done and he just wanted to talk and how I was dealing with the situation.
My mom has now accepted me for who I am. I later revealed that my super nice room mate she so loves is actually my boyfriend of 8 years and husband of 2 years. She took it well and understood why I had kept everything a secret. She loves him like her own son and when she visits US, she prefers to stay with us than with my straight brother lol. All in all, things couldn't have gone any better.
Well the first person I came out to was my brother which was all because of some strange and vivid dream I had where I kept on waking up in my room and kept trying to jump out the window only to wake up again the room would keep changing each time though it would usually be stormy or snowy but after jumping out the window like 10 times i finally walked out the door and there were two hot guy waiting there the rest was…well it was fun. I took that as a sign that I need to at least tell one person so I told my brother then my family and friends a few months later
