M2M2 - Coming Out

12 Conversations

One of the most difficult times in the lives of most gay, lesbian and bisexual people's lives, coming out refers to the time when these people tell those around them, particularly their parents, about their sexuality. This can be a very painful experience and, sadly, society still holds many prejudices which make this difficult task even harder.

If people have any stories, anecdotes or advice about coming out and how to deal with it, please feel free to discuss them in the forum below. Most of us find this time a lot easier when we know there are other people just like us who are in the same 'predicament', and when we get a lot of support from our friends. Perhaps you could even make it easier for someone reading this page, who has yet to take this step?
