Haha that’s a very good question. I promised myself to never come out to anyone ever, to stay closeted all my life and force myself to love a woman and please my friends and family. When I lost weight and after the first guy I dated, I just grew this tremendous amount of self confidence. By the time I was a junior I found the friends I grew to love and trust. But coming out to them was a nerve wracking moment each time, emotional too. It was a lot of shaking, crying, and disbelief and educating. When I came out to them, nothing else mattered. I couldn’t give two shits if anyone tried to name call me and bother me in Tech about my sexuality because I KNEW people would stand up with me, I knew they wouldn’t dare even try to say anything to me. Building strong relationships and trust with a lot of the people in the senior and junior class has made it a safer and comfortable place for me to be openly queer in tech.
If you’re looking to come out at all or just want to trust anyone, come out of anon, have a conversation with me. But if not, my advice would be to not be an arrogant queer person. Everyone is going to stereotype and judge you on misconceptions. Have people you can love and trust, no matter what, or else you’ll find yourself alone and ostracized. And really just be yourself. The biggest thing I noticed was that I acted like myself and even after I came out no one would call me out on “acting gay” because the stereotype doesn’t 100% fit me. People today are still shocked when they find out I’m queer.
To each their own I guess, I don’t know if this jumbled mess of a post helps lol#Anonymous
