    I’m going to my first lgbt youth event on the 24th and my bi flags just came! So excited and can’t wait to meet my friends in person that I’ve made online.
    What did it feel like for you when you went to your first event after recently coming out?

    (sorry I’m overwhelmed right now so sorry if that question didn't make sense)

    Depends on what you mean by event. As far as pride I had been out a long time and was actually a volunteer. It was fun.

    The first times I ever met with other LGBT+ people was at a group for people who were considering transitioning and it was very scary. After a while I was exploring coming out as lesbian and my therapist sent me to the Hollywood Gay and Lesbian Center. It was terrifying, all I did the first time was sneak in not talking to anyone and pick up a few brochures and a schedule of meetings. I felt as if my heart was going to explode.

    I've never been to Pride or anything, but the first PFlag meeting I attended was pretty cool. Sadly it's only ever been virtual, but I'd love to go to one in-person if/when lockdown is over.

    And that sounds super exciting! I hope you have a good time! :slight_smile:
