@Birdie my advice is to really examine what you want out of being "out." we have this culture now, generated by people who can afford to be loud, that everyone should be out at all times, and anything else is shameful secrecy. but really, privacy and secrecy are two very different things. there are ways to end secrecy (ie, tell folks in some safer contexts) while still maintaining privacy (not being an open book for the sake of being an open book)
@elzbieta I know that I didn’t respond to this right away but everything you said really resounded with me. Thank you for those words. I needed them. I think that the one place I want to share and be honest is with my parents and sisters. But I don’t know how they would take it out how to approach those conversations.
