    So I just recently announced myself as a lesbian, I'm a bit nervous about this. I haven't come out to my family and friends because of their religious beliefs and it makes me feel a bit lonely as I don't know or have any LGBT friends and where I live you don't see a lot of them. I hope that I can make some friends and find advice if needed.

    Hi!! I don't want you to think I'm being rude by not replying to your conversations on my public wall, I've been trying to find a way to reply but I can't.

    It's what I've been doing, but I still can't, sorry if I'm being a burden, I'm actually new to this.

    Hi! I know I may not have the same experiences as you being a trans boy and all but feel free to message any time! I'm always up for a good chat! Also, you don't have to tell anyone that you're not comfortable with! This all takes time but one day it will all be ok
