For some people, realizing what your sexuality is (AKA realizing you aren’t a straight, cis-gender person) and then telling the important people in your life comes easily. But for many people, both of these things are very tough and emotional. Coming out to the people you care about the most can be a stressful and nerve-wracking experience. It’s a time when you might feel very alone, and that can be the scariest part. We hope that our newest Real Gurl Advice video on coming out makes you feel less alone and makes this experience a little less painful for you.
You, of course, should come out in the way that makes you feel comfortable and okay… but it doesn’t hurt to get advice from girls who have actually come out to their family and friends already. Even if you’re not planning on being honest about your sexuality just yet, it’s good to have these tips in the back of your mind. Watch our video to find out what a group of real girls wishes they knew before they came out. Good luck!
