Dear Youth Ambassadors,

I am bisexual and have known for a long time. I recently came out to my mom and aunt. My mom says she will always love me for who I am. When I try to talk about my girlfriend/boyfriend, she says she doesn’t want to hear about it. I want to come out to my entire family now. How should I do this?

Sincerely,
Wanting to Come Out

Dear Wanting to Come Out,

I know how this feels. I’m bisexual also. I think that you should find someone you really trust or you know will have your back and ask them to help you tell them. I know sometimes I just want to leave, so I can be myself and go where no one knows me. But I’ve realized you can’t run forever, so find that person you trust and ask them to help. I also suggest prayer. Even though you’re bisexual, God still loves you, so talk to him.

Sincerely,
A Friend Who Believes in You

Dear Wanting to Come Out,

Okay, so being bisexual is not a bad thing. If you want to come out to your entire family, you should do it. If your mama loves you like she says she does, it shouldn’t matter what anybody else thinks. For real, if your family loves you, it shouldn’t matter what you like as long as you’re happy. That is what should matter.
P.S. I’m bisexual too.

Sincerely,
The Man with the Mohawk

Dear Wanting to Come Out,

I think, as long as your mom knows you’re bisexual, you don’t have to tell anyone else, unless you really want them to know. That’s your business, and it should stay like that.

Sincerely,
Your Friend
