Coming out was probably the hardest choice and yet the best I’ve ever made in my life so far. I grew up in a religious conservative household and though my parents were always quite partial about LGBTQIA+ rights, it was hard going to church and listening to pastors preaching that homosexuality was an abomination. As a kid, I had nothing else other than believe them. I remember praying every single night from age 7-13, asking “god”to not make me gay. So, it took me a long time to come out. But once I did, my life changed completely. I thought that coming out was just about being open about your own sexuality but I’ve realised that it is so much more than that. Coming out, is the whole process of self-discovery and self-acceptance. So, I believe that once you come into terms with yourself, that is the true moment of coming out, whether you decided to tell your parents, your friends or even no one at all.
