LGBTQ People Shared What It Was Like Coming Out As Adults, And Their Stories Are Inspirational As Heck

16.

“I was the youngest of three siblings to come out as queer. My older brother came out at 16, my younger brother came out at 27, and I came out at 31. I met a girl in 2015 who drop-kicked me out of the closet. Before her, I had a subconscious premonition I wasn’t straight, so after meeting her, I could no longer ignore it.

I spent the following four years identifying as pansexual, then fluid, then bi, back to fluid, and finally a lesbian. At 30 I was living my best openly queer life with one exception: my parents still didn’t know. As 2020 approached, my brothers and I had a running joke I should just text them: ‘Happy New Year from your super gay daughter!’ as a way to ‘rip the band-aid off,’ but I was too nervous. I asked my older brother to do it for me, and on January 1, I was officially out to everyone and I finally felt free.”
