Out of the Shadows

Out of the Shadows

For as long as I can remember I’ve felt that I was hiding who I was. I’ve always known that I was bi. I figured out when I felt the same way about my favorite actors and actresses. I tried to ignore it for a long time since I was taught that it was wrong in school and at home.

It wasn’t until last year after pride that I felt comfortable about coming out. I came out to my friends, mom, and siblings. It was kind of crazy that all of them knew and that they were waiting for me to come out. Now that I’m out, for the most part, I feel more whole. I hope that I can eventually come out to my dad and aunt. But for now I’m happy being myself.
