    Iโ€™ll start this off with a topic we can talk about: coming out. Iโ€™ve come out to only 3 of my closest friends, and before I came out, I was so scared to!! One of my friends came out to me, and it made it easier for me to come out to her!! Whatโ€™s your experience with coming out??

    First, welcome to our boards, @Alicia27 ; :smile:

    It's important to make friends online, at LGBTQ+ events etc to spread your wings and connect with other people with feelings similar to yours. During conversation, little things people mention could relate to how you have been feeling, so this is good because establishing contact increases your social networking. *Thumbs up*

    When I came out as a lesbian last year, most of my family were cool. Most people I know now are cool and accepting especially in the music business I orbit, and I think this is because there is a general acceptance for gays and bisexuals in most countries (except Italy it seems and Russia), unless people are raving fundamentalist Christians - but we won't go there. A pair of friends I knew for a long time were appalled at my sexuality and made hurtful remarks. Like I did, you have to walk away from these pig ignorant people, they will never learn what it's like to be gay or whatever sexual orientation one chooses.

    Looking back, I have never been happier for coming out. You only have one life to live. So live it the way you want, but never be bullied into silence by your critics. Make this year something to be awesome no matter what others say - dance to your own tune!


    Wishing you all the best,
