If you are struggling in coming out gay, you may be scared. You want to tell your friends, or maybe even your parents, or other close relatives, but you haven't got around to doing so yet for various reasons.

Coming out gay can be a very difficult process, it is something that not a lot of people can do, but with the right frame of mind, anyone can do it.



If you are planning on coming out as gay to your family, firstly, make sure that they are alone, so make sure that there are no unwanted listeners there with them, if there are, then your best bet is to wait for the unwanted listeners to leave.

If/when it is only your family, then go up to them, and make sure there is nothing there to distract them, for example, the television should be turned off, all electronic devices should be put down, and any music that may be playing should be stopped.



Once you have got their maximum attention, tell them that there is something important you need to say, take a deep breath, and come out with it. Once it is done, it is done, and then listen to what they have to say afterwards. They may give you some advice on what to do, they may tell you how proud they are for coming out, some parents can work out if their child is gay even before the child is, so they may tell you that they already knew, and that they are proud of you for telling them,

Coming out as gay is something that most GBLT teenagers find scary and difficult due to the fact that they believe that their parents will disown them because they will be disappointed, this isn't the case.

Parents are very accepting people and they want the best for their child, so no matter how scary the situation of coming out as gay is, it will always end up in a positive way, and once it is done, then you will feel good about yourself, and it will seem like a massive weight has been lifted off your shoulders.

With friends it is the same, real friends don't leave their friends, no matter what. If you told a true friend that you are gay, then they would be supportive of that and friends can even help you in coming out as gay to your family, if you haven't already done so.

So if you are planning on coming out as gay, be it to family, friends, or even acquaintances, all you need to remember is to not be scared, and to just do it. You will feel positive about doing it afterwards, it will be a big weight off your shoulders, and once it is done, then you can sit back knowing that you overcame your fears of coming out as gay and that you no longer have anything to worry about because it has been done, and you should be very proud of that, because some LGBT teenagers are to afraid to tell anyone.
