    I’m in the process of coming out. There are still a few more people I’d like to tell personally, but then I want to post something on social media for everyone else. I’d like to find out other people’s experiences in this & also help in figuring out how I could do it/what to say. I was thinking something light-hearted & fun as opposed to something more serious. If you know of any memes, quotes, poems etc. I’m open to suggestions :slight_smile:

    I personally haven't done it, but some of my friends have done it and their experience was quite good. One of them draw a big rainbow flag (in your case it might be a bisexual flag) and made a photograph with their face on it. sorry Ican't think of something that funny right now but maybe take a look into tumblr I guess?

    I came out on social media a few months ago and I got a really good response. I wanted it to be funny with more of a personal touch so I chose to write something myself and it seemed to do the trick.

    There are a few websites that have funny quotes. But it may take a while longer to find something that's not too funny that people think your joking!

    Good luck and you'll have to let us know how you get on :slight_smile:

    This idea might take too much time, but it could be fun. Why not make a video of yourself literally coming out of a closet while playing and/or lip syncing to Diana Ross' "I'm Coming Out"? then post it to whichever social media platform you wanted to.

    I haven't used tumblr before but I will look into it.


    That's comforting to know. I don't think it will be a huge thing as I don't have a whole lot of people on my Facebook anyway, so it will mostly be extended family & friends. I've been searching across different websites but haven't quite found what I'm looking for yet.


    Haha that is hilarious- I love it! A bit too out of character for me though, but I'd love to see a video of someone else doing it :lol:

    I've also recently seen some memes that might be perfect. One has a picture of a pie with a caption that says "Swiggity pie guess who's bi? (hint:it's me)" and another that said "Let's get one thing straight. I'm not".
    Another said "Bisexual? More like Awesomesexual!" and another one that's actually kinda cute. It has the bisexual flag as the background and uses the British 'Keep Calm and..' slogan "Keep calm I'm bisexual."

    I have found Google Images to be extremely helpful and unhelpful at the same time when searching for this kind of stuff.

    Ohh! and this one "Caution: Door swings both ways"

    Have you considered using something simple and subtle like, say, a Lesbian Pride Flag as your avi on social media?
    Those that get it will get it and those that are clueless you can tell them it represents all your favorite colors :kiss:
