P.S. I’m seeing a lot of people saying that the quiz told them to come out but they are still scared, take your time and slow down, don’t come out because some random quiz on the Internet told you to, do what needs to be done when you’re comfortable ♡

Hey, I am in the 12-14 range and I am a lesbian. I’ve known that I liked girls since I was 10. my mom is genuinely supportive and has always said that if I like girls or feel like a boy or anything I could tell her and she will always love me for who I am, my dad on the other hand… yeah not so much. I know he loves me greatly and that if I did tell him I was gay he wouldn’t go as far as some dads do and disown me and he even has some friends that are gay! I am just scared because he still goes on about the “Being gay is an abomination and a sin from god.” And stuff like that. It actually kinda hurts, I know my dad loves me more than anything in this world and he would never do anything to hurt me, but him indirectly calling me an abomination whether he means to or not hurts, and it hurts bad. I just want to be “normal” or be in a spot where if I came out nothing would change about our relationship. I wish I was just in a spot where they would except me. If they were though, I probably wouldn’t be writing this right now, and if I was it definitely wouldn’t be the same situation at all. I know my family loves me, and if I told my parents I was gay my mom would accept me in a heart beat (mind you we’ve literally had a conversation on how being gay might not actually be sinful and how love covers a multitude of sins and the Bible literally says love thy neighbor) and my dad wouldn’t disown me. It’s just, scary. And I think a lot of people reading this can agree. I want to be my true self and I want to be able to talk about how much I love girls without my family lecturing me or looking at me funny. I just want to be me. That’s all I ask for. I wish to be like those videos of gay couples living their best life. It’s like a dream to me. A goal that I’m scared I will never reach. A goal that I haven’t even taken the first steps to get to yet because I am so engulfed in that fear. I’m sorry to whoever’s reading this as it is extremely long but if you have gotten to this point I assume you are enjoying it. I just want someone to read this and know that.. you aren’t alone. There are so many people out there who will love you for you. It may be scary, overwhelming scary. But never let go of who YOU want to be. This is coming from someone who is also in the closet. And so please listen to what I’m saying as open-mindedly as possible. You aren’t alone, none of us are. :)

Thank you for reading this insanely long paragraph, Good luck out there, - Dey

Hi, I'm trans-masc and my parents are a bit iffy about this topic.
I don't think my dad likes trans people that much but they're fine.
Oh! And I'm just under 13, I'm so close!
Good luck to people with fully unsupportive parents, I wish you luck in this dreaded world

Hello! I am bisexual biromantic and also under 13 (i dont want to say my actual age) my mom supports lgbtq but my dad seems to steer away when the topic is brought up. Also, my entire family is catholic and my parents went to catholic school and it is a sin and to love the same gender (in my case, is female) and i feel kinda nervous ngl i think i should come out when i am older.

I came out as pan before Christmas and my mom don't mind it I think? I think she doesn't mind if because she sometimes watches lgbtq+ community stories on TV but my dad however, yeah no. He said that I should get it off my head and it's a sin something like dad I don't remember but ye- my older brother only came out to my mom because my older brother know that my dad will shout at him he came out as bisexual my sister however still hasn't came out tho. Ye-
