So today I came out to one of my best friends friend and her reaction was acceptance. I started out with no one in 8th grade and had the courage to tell my friend (now best friend) that I'm gay. I slowly started coming out to people in college and for the first time in forever I don't feel criticized as much. Although I do get anxiety when I go to my high school. But as of today I now have 30 people who know that I'm gay and I plan to tell more later on. The more people I tell I'm gay, the more stronger and liberated I feel. Wish me luck for the future.
