Hi I mention this in my bio but I'm currently a closeted gay pangender and I'm waiting to come out to my friends who first introduced me to the LGBTQAI+ commity that wasn't twisted or distorted by my family or the media. Without them I honestly wouldn't have started to question myself and would properly still be deep in the closet hating who I was inside. I have been holding out on coming out though because I feel like it would be too impersonal for me to tell them this through a email or a video chat. I'm positive they will accept my sexual orientation and may be confused about my gender identity because they aren't as informed about other gender identities beside boy, girl, and nonbinary but still accept it. I'm wondering if it's the right thing to to by waiting because it the next step in my journey of self discovery and acceptance. Plus they will offer me more support when I come out to my family who don't accept the Queer community. So should I just come out through the internet and not have to hide who I am from everyone or wait for when we can talk in person where it would be more personal and continue to hide in the closet.

First off I'm so glad you have friends who support you unconditionally, and second it's completely up to you. Yea I know, not the answer anyone wants but no one can make this decision for you. If you want to wait because it feels better to do in person than online, then wait. But if you feel that you can't wait any longer then go ahead and tell them. Do what feels right, trust yourself to make the right choice, only you know what's right for you. And you could always try just telling one friend through an email or video chat and see if it feels ok doing it that way. But whatever you decide, make sure that you're truly comfortable with it, because this is about you, remember it's your coming out. <3
