How to Come Out


So, after a lot of soul searching you’ve worked out you’re gay, lesbian, bisexual, or transgender but how do you tell this to the people you love? Coming out is scary, so The Mix is here to hold your hand.

On this webpage you will find information about if you’re ready to come out, the best methods to come out, being selfish and only telling who you want, what to do if you get a bad reaction, and what to do if your parents kick you out of the house.


Coming out can be a long and confusing process, so having a step by step information that you can follow is really invaluable if you are confused about what to do and where to go next.
