Anonymous said: can u give me the best advice you can? I want to come out but my school can kick you out if you show any signs of homosexuality or bisexuality, and my parents would never want to have to take me out of the school because it is a good school. they would be angry at me for that, especially since they are homophobic. I haven't told anybody about my being gay yet.
My best advice is not to come out yet given your circumstances. Wait until you’re independent of your family to come out. If you have any LGBT friends or allies, do come out to them so you have a support system until you’re on your own.
I’m sorry you have to stay in the closet. It’s not fair at all. But for now it’s probably best. Once you graduate you’ll have the liberty to make your own decisions and be who God has called you to be. Do well in school so you can get scholarships and attend the college of your choice without your parents forcing some conservative college on you and tormenting you for four more years. This way you can be out without fear of retaliation. There are scholarships for LGBT+ folks too, like the Point Foundation, so be sure to check that out as you near graduation.
