    I start my final year of school next month and I have been considering coming out to my friends. Both my close friendship group of 4 (one of which knows) and my art class of 6. I don’t know if it’s a great idea or when and how to do it.

    Honestly coming out is never going to be exactly the way you want it to be. They could be accepting, they could not. But, as long as it's what you want and you can handle any rude people and bullies, then I'd say go for it!! And as for how to do it. That depends on what point your getting across. And how much you want them to know. Say what makes you comfortable and get the teachers permission first before you tell the class, some school's have rules against lgbt speaking out.

    Thanks. I’m not going to tell teachers just my friends in the class. I’m sure they’ll be fine it’s just one of them isn’t great at keeping secrets and might tell other people
