It sucks being a lez

I am a 14 year old lesbian who hasn't exactly shared this with anybody. School's about to start, and I feel like I need to come out. Could anybody please give me some advice?

  • At 14, you won't be having s** with anyone. Continue to enjoy friendships. Wait until you are a little more mature to come out. All it can lead to now is social misery. You don't have to pretend to be anything you're not. Be yourself and act responsibly. The best time for most to come out is just before collage, and you can launch your 'new life' away from home, to 'try it out and see if it fits'. Also, some campuses are more rainbow friendly than others. I know it sounds like 'forever' away, but coming out while in HS can ruin your life. Do your research. I wish you the best.

    You're young so just hang in there. You'll be okay.

  • My sister is gay. She didn't come out until college. When I asked her why, she said that it was very difficult to be gay in high school. Keeping that in mind this was about 10 years ago.

    She, my lesbian sister, found a "friend" in high school. She did not tell me any of the details on how she broached the gay subject with her. They dated all through high school.

    Be cautious but be true to yourself.

  • thank you very much
