I Came Out On Facebook!

Family & Relationships Submitted July 6, 2020, 7:45 p.m. by Mad_Fem_Lesbian

I saw a really annoying anti lesbian tweet and I just couldn't hold my silence anymore. I wanted to be able to express myself on Twitter (I have some family on there) about lesbian related stuff openly. I realized the only way I could do that was to come out.

So, I came out on Twitter first and then to family and friends on Facebook.

I feel kind of bad for not telling my parents and my sister (I live with them) in person first, but I'm just glad that I finally came out!

I'm 28 and I've been thinking about coming out since I was 23. I never felt like any time was right and I was just never sure on how to say it. I actually talked to my therapist last year about my anxiety related to coming out. I didn't think it would be such an impulsive decision.

I feel this weird anxiety despite getting positivity from everyone so far. It feels so strange, but freeing at the same time!

Congrats on your new found freedom! Coming out was one of my biggest fears but also my greatest decision ever. Happy Lesbians!!

Thank you!

I was terrified not because of the opinions of my immediate family, but with other family members.

I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders and I'm looking forward to what life as an out lesbian has in store for me!

I'm moving to Vegas next year, so I'm hoping there's more of a lesbian scene there than it is where I live now.
