As a queer person I have come out several times in my life trying to find a label that fit me.

When I was 13 I came out as a lesbian, I was in an all girls school and I got a lot of hate. A couple months later when I started dating my first girlfriend i remember rumors went round the school quicker than wild fire. We used to sneak down to a corridor and make out in secret.
People were not happy and decided to take it upon themselves to call us names, tell us it was wrong and disgusting.

When I was 14 I realised that label didn't fit and came out as bisexual. People told me I was greedy and couldn't make my mind up. Lesbian told me to pick a side and I didn't yet have the acsess to words that would actually have fitted me better.

At 16 I came out as both pansexual and non binary. I was at college now and I knew other trans people so this was like my baby step. I was absolutely terrified as to how people would respond to this but I was now in a mixed school with a good crowd of queer friends. I started using They/Them pronouns although I wasn't insistent and was too nervous to correct people who gendered me incorrectly. I felt like I was being a nuisance.

After I left college I went back into the closet ahout my trans-Ness. I was still using Jack as my name which got me a lot of questions but my dead name was still on my Facebook. I became close with another trans person and towards term 3 of first year decided I'd come back out to my friends.

A lot of people were confused and continued to misgender me but my closest friends noted it quickly and made the switch. A lot of people said it made sense to them that I was trans and they were upset that I'd had to go back in the closet after being out for 2 years prior to university. Northampton never felt like a safe place to be trans and to this day it still doesn't. I'm lucky now to have a massive support network of people who are trans, non binary and queer who have been my rock.

Coming out as transgender has been the hardest thing I've ever done but honestly I have no ragrets not one single letter.

It's nearly been a year since I came out, what a journey it's been for me. I didn't have many friends at school, mostly kept to myself so I didn't have people to talk to about this therefore I kept it bottled in until I came to university. Since I've been at university I've met some amazing people who I now consider my friends, this gave me the confidence to come out to them and they gave me a lot of support. 
It was the 27th of March at an Insane Tuesdays (For first years this was an old SU student night at the old campus) I had been planning on telling my friends for the past week but was struggling with my anxiety, so on the night I got a bit tipsy (plastered) and got the courage to tell the old LGBTQ+ Officer, Sophie Turner, my friends James Morrell and Yang Ren and my now boyfriend Jack Hill. Every single one of them were extremely supportive and welcoming.

The message from this is there is no right way to come out nor should you feel pressured, you'll be ready when your ready. 
Jordan, Secretary of LGBTQ+ Society.

It was #internationalcomingoutday last week.
It took me a long time to come out to my friends and family. I feared that I wouldn’t be good enough for them if I they knew I was transgender. I feared I wouldn’t be loved or as loved. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ The truth is that the real challenge and struggle was to overcome my internalised transphobia. The real struggle was to change my belief that being trans was ‘less than’. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I have always known I was a boy, my deepest and strongest desire since I was 4 has been to be a boy and to be seen as such. It’s a constant desire, a constant instinct that’s always with you in the back of your head, in your heart. It is in your identity, it is in your genes. The problem was I would never wake up with a boys body... and being trans didn’t match the idea of perfection or success that I had created for myself with the help of society. Growing up all I heard about being trans was that it was something negative, something you didn’t want to be associated with. That’s when my internalised transphobia was planted. I started to hate and be ashamed of something that was part of me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Knowing that once your publicly out as transgender you become a second class citizen, you become part of “one of the most marginalised groups in our society” is a hard prospect to embrace in the 21stcentury. And keep many from coming out and living authentically. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I believe that there is a truly beautiful thing about being transgender and about transitioning into your most authentic self as scary and as painful as it can be. The choice of transitioning can also be the best thing that happens to someone with gender dysphoria if society is more inclusive of trans matters, is more educated on trans matters and has ZERO stigma around it.⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Being trans can happen to anyone, is not a choice. The choice is to come out, to embrace it, to be proud of it and change societies view of it by educating people into what it means to be trans. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀#lgbt #transisbeautiful #transrights#transgender #transrights #lgtbrights #trusttheprocess#oneofthem

Sexuality is confusing and daunting, especially if there aren’t any words to accuse describe how you feel. And if you tell me that sexuality isn’t confusing, great, you’re one of the lucky ones who never had to wonder if they were a freak, if anyone else was feeling the same. You found a place to belong and you belonged, but unfortunately some people need to figure out how they feel, and then figure out what the fuck that’s called! (@heyodamo on YouTube)

#internationalcomingoutday to my 15 year old self. Be proud of who you are, what you are and how you feel. Don’t let anyone push you down or discriminate you. To come out is a process of immense courage and involves not only oneself but people around you also, everyone in the context is shaped by a non-hetero phobic atmosphere. In the future I hope we don’t have to come out to anyone, people will just accept everyone how they are. #taingenskit #loveislove

I am two days late on that international coming out day, I came out with this picture I was 16. I had no idea how to process what was happening to me after falling in love with her, my weird brain expressed it asking her the pose like this through a mirror. Maybe a way to see my self my true self? The expression of having to hide? How to come out? It was not at all an easy time for me. I am very attached to this picture.

Gdyż dwa dni temu miał miejsce Międzynarodowy Dzień Coming Out’u, a dzisiejsze newsy zdominował pierwszy raz organizowany marsz równości w Lublinie i związane z nim akcje, wariacje, atrakcje i perturbacje…  I pomyślałam sobie, że pierwszy raz Coming Out Day obchodzono już w 1988 w Stanach! Całe 30 lat temu!!! 30 lat pracy nad świadomością i edukacją! I poczułam się na to spostrzeżenie zawstydzona, a nawet gorsza, a dokładnie tak, jak w chwilach kiedy myślę, że podczas kiedy my biegaliśmy z kosami w Powstaniu Styczniowym to w Londynie już ruszała pierwsza linia metra! To samo uczucie towarzyszyło mi kiedy jako nastolatka, czytając Ojca Chrzestnego, dowiedziałam się, że w NYC w latach 20-tych mieli lodówki, a u nas jeszcze w latach 50-tych pod kuchennymi oknami zostawiało się dziury w murze, aby podokienne szafki kuchenne mogły pełnić rolę chłodziarek… Czemu właśnie te dwa różne przykłady ze sobą zestawiłam? Konkluzję pozostawiam niepisaną. —————————•••———————-
Because two days ago it was an International Coming Out Day

Yesterday was #internationalcomingoutday ️ I hope this world starts becoming a safer place for you. Safe to love. Safe to be loved. Safe to live your god damn truth. I am so blessed to have people in my life who have done nothing but love and support me and my growth. They have given me the space to learn about myself and be angry about the injustices experienced by #qwoc. They have been there even when I’ve  cried ugly tears of joy at small moments of victory...I am thankful to those who didn’t do nothing when they had the opportunity to stand up against the violence on queer bodies. I am so grateful to the people around me who are willing to learn, ask questions and to support me the way they do. Thankful to my mother who just loved me regardless of people’s bullshit, for being my safety when I’m scared and don’t believe in myself. For always reminding me of my responsibility as a #qwoc ...but I also understand how people do not have that same privilege. I hope that you are never pressured to “come out”. I hope that you know; you ALWAYS mattered and YOU ARE LOVED. I hope that when you are ready that you love yourself fully and wholly and know that you are worthy of love. You are more than enough...and I hope that you know that you’re not alone. Also remember: “everyone’s gay until they come out as straight” ️‍and that’s okay.

part 2 of 3 
from what I can remember when I was growing up in Missouri the lgbtq community was never a negative topic in my VERY diverse family. If anything... it may not have been discussed other than saying thats gay in replacement of thats stupid is bad; which mostly occured in elementary school. 
The next time I can think of was entering 8th grade in a new city(in Missouri), where the first time I saw a person who was either lesbian or trans(he ended up trans) I knew them and was curious but it was never discussed. 
Finally, high school hit and i think thats when I became aware of the confusion even if EVERYONE else had already assumed based off how I dressed. Throughtout high school it was something I seemed to already know about myself, but burried. Between 9th grade and graduating a year early I had went to 4 schools in 3 states and 4 cities. Although I have a huge family I lived 1500 miles away with only my parents, and ended up graduating with only my parents in the audience and knowing no one in my graduating class, so... by 2012 when I met my now.. ex-male-fiance I had decided I want to have a big beautful wedding, kids, and grow old with a man....because if I couldnt have graduation...that was the next logical conclusion? crazy to think about now... I spent 5 years in a hetrosexual relationship which for many reasons wasnt healthy. HE knew and friends knew I identified as BI, but in my head the happy ending was with him... a man... who i thought I was in love with. After our 5th anniversay I met a very close friend who I ended up venting heavily too, and her response was...  you know what you want, you have the answers and she was correct, so I put an end the relationship. This is when youtube became a LIFESAVER!

Part 3 of 3: I spent 2 months post breakup watching videos made by #lgbtyoutubers . Catch is my parents STILL didn't know why we REALLY broke up. I had decided I wasn't worried about my family not accepting me, but this whole journey was about me accepting ME & YT played a HUGE part in that. I jumped on the Shannon and @cammiescott train post break up, but watched all the videos on @nowthisisliving on youtube, came across Sarah & Rachel on youtube(@itssarbearr & @itsrachbenzo)highly recommend, Lucy and Kaelyn(@lucylizz & @kaeepet ) post break up, and also BerkleyLovesTori( @berkleycade & @torimonaco). These four couples (post break up and currently still madly in love) taught me that you CAN be NOT straight and still live your life VERY HAPPY. that I may have more in common with people I normally wouldnt have associated with growing up and that LOVE IS LOVE regardless of gender.  So after hours and hours of watching YT, and being tired of my parents thinking we just broke up because of fighting I decided I wanted to tell them... 4/30/18 I was GOING To tell them, so I wrote a short letter saying I was BI and wanted something different, and thats why we broke up. gave it to my father, said read it when i leave the room, and then give it to mom. went to sleep heart pounding. The following afternoon I recieved a text from my mom saying, we kind of assumed, and we love you not matter what. For whatever reason my father didn't say anything until later in the story. I sent a picture of the letter to most of my sisters who were all supportive, and then... 3 months later 7/30/18 I decided  I was going to come out on my facebook, not for anyone else but myself. I had heard the quote pictured above in the A Letter To You by @nowthisisliving, and decided it was something worthy of my story to be a part of me FOREVER, so I had it tattooed on my arm, and posted my story on facebook. My father THEN commented on the post( even though we arent fb friends) in way that was very fitting for him, intelligent and confusing! but supportive. Im so greatful for the women who put their lives on YT and my F & F! #internationalcomingoutday #lgbt #nowthisisliving #sarahandrachel

Part 3 of 3: I spent 2 months post breakup watching videos made by #lgbtyoutubers . Catch is my parents STILL didn't know why we REALLY broke up. I had decided I wasn't worried about my family not accepting me, but this whole journey was about me acc

#comingoutday #comingoutstory  For the international coming out day I wanna share my story, no for compassion or other but because we have to still fights for our rights and misconceptions about homosexuality. In my teenage I didn’t want to recognise myself as gay and the process took a bit longer just because I was ashamed of myself or I wasn t strong enough of being bullied. And I kept myself in a shell. Late teenage I had first experiences and then came out with friends really slowly. Then I decided to don t be ashamed of myself and fight for that. I came out with my parents and I had the biggest slap on my face. My parents refused me and kicked me out from home. It is not because Of that, it is the feelings that your parents are ashamed of you and they leave you and not being loved for who I am. I could be loved for who they want me to be. At the same time I felt a sensation of finally I have got, finally I know their reaction and thank god of that day. FREEDOM. From that day my real life I think has been started, no being ashamed of myself, maybe sometimes overreacting to don t be drowned. But it was finally me.. and I fought for long and still fighting.. They still struggling to accept but I love them. It is the only answer to live the best life, LOVING.
