My coming out story

Not that long ago I came out as being a lesbian. Everyone was very accepting and I had no serious trouble with it at all, I was very relieved. I had a great relationship with a girl and for the first time in my life I felt accepted and comfortable.

Then not long after that relationship ended I started to spend a lot of time with one of my male friends, over this time I started to develop feelings for him. I was confused and didn’t really know what to think, I told everyone I was gay and now I like a guy.

I knew I wasn’t straight and calling myself bisexual didn’t feel right to me. I had a lot of trouble trying to find a label to fit the way I felt. After a while I decided to not label myself, when people ask me about it I simply say ‘ If I love someone then I love them, I don’t care about what they are I care about who they are.’ I think labels restrict us as we feel we cannot stray from them, so I no longer have any labels. – Anonymous, age 16
