Who here has read The Crucible? Tl;dr version (and spoilers, I guess) It was about the Salem Witch Trials, they hung people because the plot of Mean Girls. Anyways, there was one man, Giles Corey, who, for reasons, was pressed to death under large stones. His last words were, "More weight". Also, as an aside, this actually happened.I figured out I was gay at 12. I told my family, but I did not publicly come out until I was 16. I know 4 years isn't tha...

It took me a long time to understand my femininity as an asset; but by channeling the energy I once wasted worrying about what other people thought of me into exploring the breadth of the human experience, I began to think critically, unlearn gender roles and beauty standards, and create my own aesthetic as an artist and happiness as an individual.Very grateful to my old friend and star of #AlexStrangelove, @tonimarz, for snapping this beautiful shot ...
@gewglybearart
Plain ol happiness as the contest says- I’m not the best with advice but I can share my experience- I’m not really a person that takes photos and less photos of my pride. I’ve never been the type of person to wear rainbow and dress up for pride festivals and things like that. After coming out, I feel people expected me to start dressing differently and acting differently... or “more gay.” Some people might say that I’m ashamed but it’s n...

@dermz
When I was younger, I never thought I’d be accepted for who I am, let alone, accept myself for who I am; being gay and growing up in a small hick town, it’s hard to be who you are. Once you are able to love yourself and be happy with who you are, that is one of the first steps to leading a life of happiness! Stay strong and keep looking for that silver lining. You may not see it, but it’s there - waiting around the corner. Once I saw it, and gat...

@andrewfreij
I was no stranger to fear, a constant thought that I would never be happy or be able to be who I wanted to be. This thought consumed my life, sucked out all the hope and happiness I could have, until I decided to make a change. 6 years ago I decided I was going to move to Los Angeles . While boarding the plane to move, I made myself a really important promise. I promised myself I would be unapologetically me, and find happiness. I knew the journey was...

it took 29 years for me to feel comfortable in my own skin, but the wait was worth it. there was a time, even after coming out, when i wrestled with my sexuality. the constant up and down, back and forth was exhausting, but with the support of so many good people that chapter is closed. today i wear my heart on my sleeve and don’t apologize for it. you can too... after all, we are living the future so many dreamed of; now it’s our turn to show the...
@artbyadamgregory
PRIDE❤️🧡💛💚💙💜My advice to someone struggling to come out is that, no matter if you are ready or not, always be unapologetically you! You don’t have to hide yourself. Being gay is something we come across privately within ourselves so don’t feel pressured to make it known to everyone. You are beautifully you and when you are freely yourself then your voice of being gay will just feel natural to be heard. My advice is be whole and ...

@kevin.cabaniss
I’m lucky. My family has always accepted who I am; without judgement or fear. I don’t have a horror story in coming out or loving openly. My friend group never turned their backs. I realize I’m among the few and precious with that story line and am grateful each day for that. Pride to me has always been about acknowledging those who’ve come before me, who’ve made it possible to stand with my mom so joyous the day gay marriage passed by law. ...
@kingsleyyy
Alex Strangelove is available June 8 only on Netflix and to celebrate Alex’s endearing journey of self-exploration, here’s my advice on coming out: Coming out isn’t just a declaration; it’s freedom. In that moment, you’re allowing yourself to breathe, to flourish and to love; gone are the days when you have to question your instinct, mask your feelings and disguise your desires. The entire world is now yours to walk through, authentically an...
@parker_thegayone
(PS I DID NOT HAVE A KAI KAI AFTER THIS!) I wanted to give you guys some advise on coming out. 1) do not come out if you’ve heard anyone in your family say anything negative about gay people, it’d be more safe to not come out. 2) if it’s ok have a “family meeting” get it all out to everyone at once so you don’t have to explain to multiple people multiple times. It’ll be easier on you and others. 3) do not try to combat the anxiety and th...

Coming out can be hard, but all I can say is you only have one shot at life and being you isn't anything to be scared of it will give you the chance to find the one your ment to be with,opens up the world in so many different ways. Open the door and see what the world has instore for you, you maybe surprised at what's around the corner. #beyourself #toalexstrangelove #support @queerty
@kaitheteenagewitch
#toalexstrangelove coming out to yourself is harder than coming out to others. It takes a lot of courage to look in a mirror and say “this is who I am and I’m proud of it” but it’s worth it. The more you say it to yourself the easier it will be to say to others. That’s not to say that others will accept you, because sometimes they won’t, and that rejection can be hard. But you will have a whole community of people ready to cheer you up and...

Alex Strangelove is premiering on Netflix on June 8. It’s an endearing and irreverent coming of age story, and in honor of that, here’s my coming out advice:I was a sad kid, growing up in Mississippi. I had no idea just how much happiness (and yes, love) was waiting for me at the end of the rainbow, and I wish someone had told me my life was going to turn out to be this beautiful. Know that it’s okay to take your time, and trust that you can be ...
@jameltyre
Coming out is always hard. Even when you know you'll have people on the other side supporting you. I had so much insecurity growing up and being in the closet attributed to alot of it. I hated smiling in front of people, I had body issues, I hated looking in the mirror while in public, and so many others. Though I still have some insecurities, like many other people, when I came out most of those negative voices inside my head began to diminish. It'll...

@queerty to anyone struggling to come out my advice is to not pressure yourself and to keep growing. No one has the right to out to out you, it’s your truth to reveal to whoever you deem worthy.

#ToAlexStrangelove Sometimes its not about other people knowing who you are; its more important that YOU know who you are.

The most important thing when you come out is coming out to yourself. For everyone, the acceptance process is definitely the hardest part. A lot of question will go through out mind, we are worried if everyone will keep being the same with us, if our parents will love us as the same way, if the society in general will be nice to us ... it's a lot of "if's", but have you stopped for a moment and already asked to yourself if you are happy, content and s...

Coming out can be very scary. I was raised in a Southern Baptist family. I came out only when I was ready. To whom ever you come out to I advice to do it on a Friday night, but not on a holiday.

It’s pride month and to kick it off I’d like to share something a bit more personal. Life as I know it completely changed when I fell in love with a boy, it was at that moment in my life I realized that I was gay. It was hard to understand and was pretty confused myself, I struggled internally and made rash decisions because of this newly found feeling. I was afraid and was unsure, but coming to terms and accepting who I truly am has changed my li...

I get a lot of people wondering about how they know they are queer. It’s not about just having an experience to find out. When you find someone who is special, who you connect with, it will be a meaningful experience no matter their biological sex or gender identity. It’s about being open to connection with what’s in someone’s heart, not between their legs. Find the person whose heart resonates with yours, find a safe place to explore love and...
