    Hi!
    I relized that I wasn’t straight about 4 years ago, and recently came out to my dad and 3 best friends.
    I want to find a way to tell my family and friends that I’m a lesbian. But I’m scared they won’t except me.
    Could anyone help me? I’m looking for friends that are LGBTQ,
    Kind regards Noa

    Welcome to EC Noa,

    As it pertains to coming out, I don't have much experience. Nobody in my family knows and most of my friends don't know. If you want help on coming out, I highly recommend the Coming Out Advice section on the forums page. There are many advisors and community facilitators that can help you out.
    If you are looking for a friend, I'm here.

    Coming out can always be scary, even when you do expect acceptance. You can always try to bring up related topics, like "I just found out [gay celebrity] is gay!" and see how they react. Kind of test the waters like that.

    For friends, there are friendly people here :slight_smile:

    Welcome. I can't help much with the coming out as I am just coming to terms with my gender dysphoria and as such a lesbian as it is and no one knows. I'm here for you though if you just need to chat and air things out.
