I'm non-binary, ace and pan and I came out as bi (my family literally just think it's straight, gay or bi so it was bi or stay in the closet with my crippling depression until I could move out) to my parents about two years ago (I was scared shitless while doing it as they both voted against same sex marriage), they were kind of okay with it (though they did ask if it was a phase). I just scared of coming out properly because they aren't supportive of trans people (they misgender my friend's brother who is fully transitioned and are openly against transitioning).
I was going to finally come out to extended family this year on my birthday but covid happened so that's off.
I'm actually terrified of getting kicked out or disowned. They only family members that I think would be supportive are my aunt the lives in Canada and my sister who's 14 so I couldn't go anywhere if I got kicked out.
Sorry this has been a bit of a rant but if anyone has advice about what I should do I'd really appreciate it. :)
Hi, one piece of advice that I have for coming out is to have a back up plan, whether it be move to Canada, just so that you know that you are supported and safe, and/or ask friends that accept and love you if you could stay with them for a while, while you try to find someplace to stay permanently. There are also great communities out there that can help so I would always recommend doing your research on those. Just remember the people that you matter to will always support you and you are loved💛🤍💜🖤
