So I am married to a man and just had the realization last October that I am bi. Part of me feels that if I were to come out to my family they would just ask why it was even important to share if I am already married. Like I made my pick and that’s all there is to it. But the other part of me feels like this has been hiding deep inside me for so long and I need to share it. Any suggestions or stories of coming out would be encouraging. This is the only space I currently am “out.”
@AlexTheGirl the realization for me came from the fact that the reason I get so offended by people speaking poorly of lgbtq+ was not because I was this hardcore ally but actually a part of those labels so I was being hurt by every word. There are some in my family that would be completely supportive, my uncle and his husband have been together for over 12+ years. Others in the family would be really negative about it..
@AlexTheGirl My grandparents have been known to send my uncle books on how not to be gay 🤦🏽♀️ and other members did not invite his husband to their wedding but only my uncle😑 So it would definitely be a split. And I think my parents in particular would be negative.
All I can say is keep thinking about it. You're valid in any case!
