coming out

‘My Tinder date said, ‘Let me see what SHE wants to drink…’ I felt a huge, warm feeling in the pit of my stomach. It was the first time I was addressed with female pronouns.’: Woman comes out as trans with support from co-workers, friends

“I was born on January 25, 1995. The name on my birth certificate is recorded as Derek Sabado with the letter ‘M’ next to it. The year is 2021, and as I’m writing this, I have never felt more happy and proud of the woman I have become.”

‘If I can’t have sex with my partner, I’m not staying with them.’ It hurt to hear these things from people who claimed to love me.’: Asexual woman shares journey to self acceptance, ‘We deserve the space to exist without question’

“At the party, someone prompted each of us to go around and share how we identified. ‘Gay, Bi, Lesbian, etc.,’ then it came to me. ‘Asexual.’ ‘Oh, you’re the one who’s asexual!’ another friend said. I exclaimed, ‘Yup!’ From there, I continued down the rabbit hole of what asexuality was.”

‘Are you living an alternative lifestyle?’ I was PHYSICALLY thrown out of my house at 2 a.m. by my mom. It took losing everything to gain the life I have now.’: Woman disfellowshipped after coming out, ‘Love won when my wife and I said our vows’

“In high school, I lied to myself about Dana. My freshman year in college, I lied to myself about my friend Ashley. My parents reported me. When the committee asked me about my ‘alternative lifestyle,’ I finally told the truth.”
