Default Re: How do I come out?

Well, eventhough I'm not gay, I'll try to help out here.

I think you should start by asking yourself exactly why it is you want to share this with others. What's your hope here, what do you expect to gain?

Sharing anything really personal is always a risk (esp. when it's something that will immediately set you apart from most people). there's always the chance (probably more than you'd like to think) that it/you won't be accepted too well. You might want to keep that in mind.

I think people share really personal things in order to not only 'get it off their chest', but also to gain acceptance and get closer with others they trust. this might not happen in your case, so maybe it would be best to come up with other ways of getting that closeness without taking such a risk.
