    I first realized it when I was 11. I denied it for a while. Accepted myself at 13 and started coming out at 14.

    I recognized my not-heterosexuality around 12 and came (wrongly) out as bisexual by the age of 15. I know I'm not-cis since I'm 14 (first signs at the age of 8-9 but I don't remember much) and will come out today at the age of 18 :slight_smile: *tells everyone everywhere*

    I had feelings for 2 years but denied it and tried to change it. Once I accepted it, I was in the closet for 3.5 years

    With my gender I first came out at 7, then after years of "gender conversion therapy" my 2nd time was 27. With my sexuality it was 3 months ago. The gender was such a pain with my family that I didn't want to bother coming out with my sexuality and explaining myself further. My mom, girlfriend, best friend, 1 cousin, and this place knows but that's it. I'll come out fully when I move away from my crazy family.

    This.

    First started questioning early teens but didn't accept it for a very long time. I wasn't ready to come out back then but really wish I'd tried to accept it earlier.
