My Coming Out Party?!
Hey Guys! My name is Sarah and I'm a sixteen year old, a fresh out of the closet lesbian. My journey as a "baby dyke" as Tee refers to me, began about the age of 13, when I started to develop a crush on my best friend. (original, huh?!)
I didn't come out however, until the spring of 2010, until then I had incredibly long hair, dressed in hollister, abercrombie and other very girlie clothes, but over the Christmas break I cut my hair into a shaggy hair-do, similar Justin Bieber, and started wearing baggier clothing, then all hell sprung loose.
I came out to my friends at school and virtually all of them were very supportive of who I was as a person and my decision to come out, but later that same week, after I got into a fight with my cousin who wrote me a message on MySpace explaining that she had "dirt" on me, my mom who was curious as to this "dirt", and asked me what it was about?!! So I took a deep breathe and I told her right there and then, that I was a lesbian and I'd always known. And of course like most parents, she totally dismissed it and told me that it was a phase and then got angry and refused to talk about it. To this day, she still hasn't spoken about it.
I don't understand how any parent wouldn't have a clue, you see growing up I was always a tomboy and perferred to hang out with the boys, play football rather than hanging with the girls and going shopping. I shopped in the boys section of stores until the seventh grade, I mean come on!!
So it wasn't until later during my sophomore year of high school, I came out to my English class during a presentation. The project was on the lack of freedom worldwide. I decided to do mine of course, on equality and gay rights. I presented it and one kid in the class asked me if I was gay and I told him yes. The teacher, needless to say, was my favorite teacher and didnt have a problem. I recently started school again and I have a mutual friend who told me about a group that consists of the school's LGBTQ community and I plan to join that soon...
I apologize for the lack of video, this week has been crazy. I'll have more stuff next week, so Email me topic ideas and such to talk about! and I'll see you guys next week, peace!
Love, Sarah <3
