    Hi! I’m a college student who identifies as female and bisexual. I’m here hoping to meet others in the LGBT+ community and get some advice on coming out.

    (I'm kinda new to this and haven't come out/full decided I'm trans) But if/ when I do I think I will either give whoever I want to come out to a letter or send a text to them and then just give them some time. It's probably a bit different will gay/lesbian/bi so if I were you I'd probably come out to the person who would be most supportive and just be blunt and just tell them and then elaborate. I imagine it's like jumping into a cold pool. You keep telling yourself you're going to do it but you don't until you just jump. Don't think about how you're saying it to a person, think about just saying it.(Like, I would literally just say,"I'm bi.") Jump, panic, and then realized it's actually OK.

    That's my advice, haven't come out and I'm not sure about who I like but that's my advice from a point of no experience. Hope it helps!

    You made it! You’re here and we are happy to welcome you with open arms. One of the neatest things about this site is you can get advice from just about every angle. We gots young, old (and middle age, sigh). We’ve got those who have walked this path and those who support it. Dive in. Read other’s sagas and learn from them. We look forward to hearing what you have to teach us.
    ((momhugs))
