Ways to tell cis people you're trans without telling them you're trans:
"I take a prescription for my endocrine glands "
"I had to have reconstructive surgery because (insert vague medical description of what you had done ) , yea It's weird, it's estimated about .5% of the population need it."
"They messed up on my birth certificate, so I had to legally correct my name later when I was an adult"

So I've always known I'm asexual. It's been pretty obvious to me. Then I thought I was aroace because, what else could I be?
Then I realised that I like the idea of a romantic relationship. Why it took so long is a mystery to me, but the fact that I have a severe lack of common sense must have played a role.
So I researched. And I have finally figured it out.
So goodbye sunset flag, I had a great stay!
I'm still very asexual tho
But I'm also pan!
Really have no idea how to do this. I'm pan ace y'all have a nice day

Eddie did not expect his coming out to his team to be by answering “I’m gay!” to Buck lamenting the lack of single queer men in LA that understand the plight and schedule that come with dating a firefighter.

I hate being in the closet but right now I'm not actually doing anything to change that bc of uni stress and also some friends that don't understand asexuality but I don't have the time or nerve to deal with that right now but of course, that must mean I actually love it here 🙃
The thing is, I would bet you that none of the people who are shitting on Harry would say that to you. Because to them, your reasons are valid. But because his life doesn't fit what being closeted "should" look like, or his reasons aren't acceptable to them, then the only answer is that being famous is more important to him than anything else.

I kind of came out to someone as aro/ace and she said “Yeah I get what you mean, I’ve felt that” and then it turns out she didn’t understand at all and just went on a story about her ex and how they cheated on her? That’s a bit different from the fact that I’ve never crushed on anyone or wanted to date/have sex with someone :/

Jojo Siwa explains the risk of coming out publicly she felt when talking to her girlfriend beforehand, but then emphasizes how happy she is that she did! 🌈❤️

With pride right around the corner, please remember that you don't have to come out. You should come out when you want to, to who you want to, when you feel safe to.

A WIN FOR THE LADIES IF I MAY SAY SO

I feel like we always see parents who are 100% super supportive allies, or parents who are horrible and cruel. At least in media or in the most popular stories. But I feel like that ignores just how many people have parents where you just have no idea? And even if you think they’ll accept you on a surface level, you don’t know if they have a breaking point. Especially if you need to go on hrt, or request they change the way they think about and refer to you. Sure they’re liberal and all, or centrists, or “tolerant”, but how far does that stretch?
I think most closeted LGBT+ kids live like this, wading around in the grey area. I’d like it of more of us knew that was normal, I’d like if we talked about it more.

Step by step
We're still figuring things out, but we'll get there.
This was a quick one, I damn near forgot!
I'm new-ish to pride having been closeted throughout my teens; not for lack of support or safety, but rather internal conflicts. Even now I'm perennially shy about expressing my attraction to men as a man, and it's not info I tend to volunteer. So I am forever in AWE of anyone who has the strength to be seen, to be visible and vocal; even if it's just a badge, something small and easily missed by most. I can't express the camaraderie I feel every time.
Not to be dramatic or anything.
'Poor tact leading to accidental foot in mouth Taka' is one of my favourites (followed closely by 'unexpectedly competent Taka in an unusual field) and 'improper' to mean incorrect vs 'improper' to mean indecent is an easy mistake to get tripped up on.
Plus Taka espousing 'Uniform Policy' in a school that clearly authorises an insane amount of uniform customisation tickles me something fierce. There seem to be next to no actual rules in Hope's Peak but Taka'd be DAMNED if that stopped him enforcing some kind of order.
(additionally, looking up references for the hallways of the hellscape that is Hope's Peak was a JOURNEY. Bamboo corridor?? Bright red/green/purple lighting?? Reminded me of LCC which felt like a repurposed car park except with Hope's Peak it's a disused 80s strip club -in both cases, a nightmare to attend.)
(also! some answered asks about this comic [here])

In honor of national coming out day, here's a reminder that:
you are valid regardless of whether or not you are out
you are under no obligation to come out
only you can decide when and if you want to come out - but you should make sure that you are safe if you want to come out
there is no "deadline" to come out
if someone comes out to you, support them even if you don't understand yet!
I am proud of you if you are closeted. I am proud of you if you are out. I am proud of you if you are somewhere in between. And no matter where you are, you should be proud too <3

Throwback to the fucking time some guy asked me out and I was all like: I’m flattered but I’m aroace :/
And dude was like: oh, what’s that?
And I explained what it meant and like literally two days later he came out as aroace too

Tweets by Brian G. Murphy reading,
Thinking about “coming out” & how its roots were originally separate from “the closet.” It wasn’t about telling straight people you’re queer, it was about coming out into queer community
In many ways, modern “coming out” centers straight people: LGBTQ telling straight people 1/?
but “coming out” doesn’t need to center straight people.
Maybe, I think, coming out SHOULDN’T center straight people.
What does “coming out” look like without being mediated by straights? I want more of that version of coming out. 2/?
You don’t need to tell ANY straight person you’re queer in order to come out. Coming out is OUR thing. For ourselves and our communities. 3/4
Community, IMHO, is central to the queer experience. Come out to be seen and supported by fellow LGBTQ folks, not because you owe it straight people (you don’t) 4/4
