Came Out, as being gay
My Coming Out Story
I first came out to my mom, in the basement of our old home. But I didn't tell no one else. One day, I was with my friends, Jessica and Kala in our First Period class in my Junior Year of High School, I told them that I am gay, and they was excepting of me coming out. Then the next day, I told my other friend Amanda, and she was also excepting. Then I came out to everyone, on Facebook on May 14, 2011. A lot of people were ok with it, but some people was not. So some people deleted me from Facebook and stop talking to me. Some people was posting things onto my Facebook Wall. Saying, "That I am going to hell." And some picture of a Male and a Female, kissing, and kinda making love. Before I came out, as being gay, a lot of student in my High School, would say "Hi" to me. Then when I came out, they won't say anything to me. There was a kid, that was saying stuff about me, to other kids in my high school. My high school wasn’t that big. We only had about 400 students in 9-12 grade. So it went around the school. My one friend, Arien told me what happen and I was upset. I had to talk to someone about it. So I went down to my school's Career & Counseling Center "CCC", but they was closed. So I went down to the another person who can help, and that was the Nurses Office. When I got down there, I started to cried, because I didn't know what else to do. So, she closed down the office, and called, my Counseler down to her office, to talk to me. She called down the person who was saying all of this down to her office to talk, and all the bullying did stop a little bit, but not all the way. In my ELA class, we had to do a project to do, and present our project to the class. So I did it on Gay Bullying. The kid that started everything was also in my ELA Class. It went ok, but there was some talking in the background. When I am talking to a teacher, the kids who was bullying me, and his friends were talking about me. How did I know that, that they was talking about me? It is because they was looking at me, talking, and laughing. I didn’t even want to graduate on time, because I didn’t want them to start anything when I am up there getting my diploma. That is sad. But I did it. I went up there, got my diploma, and it went great. Now I don’t need to see them anymore, and I am happy now.
What did I do, to keep it together?
When I come home from school, I'll will be upset, bad, unhappy, and kinda wanted to kill myself. But I didn't. I will watch The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and listen/watch some YouTube Video/Music Videos.
Here are some YouTube Music Video, from some LGBT people or allies. Everyday, I'll will come home from school and listen to these songs, and it make me happier, and a reason for living.
