Coming out can be a big step for anyone. If you’re lesbian, gay, bisexual or trans you don’t have to tell anyone, that decision competly lies with you. But being honest about who you are can really help you to be happy.
Start by telling someone you completely trust. See examples below:
- friend/best friend;
- family member;
- sports coach;
- scout leader;
- a friend who has already come out as gay.
The reaction will most probably be positive – but be prepared for a more negative response too. Sometimes it takes time for people to come to terms with the news. Give them a little while!
