How out are you? Completely
Where did you come out? Malaysia
What’s your story like?
The first person I came out to was a girl I was quite close friend with at that time. What made me decide to come out was this guy I met as I’d never thought that having feelings towards the same sex is possible, and my previous thoughts of being attracted to the same sex were wrong.
Friends accepted me well, with the few I haven’t hear from since the day I came out to them.
My siblings accepted it very well after awhile. Prior to that, my sister asked if I want to see a shrink. My brother tried getting a female prostitute for me.
My parents, I’ve never came out officially to them, but they have met my ex-es. And till date, my parents refer to my partner as my “friend” and nevertheless did they show any less care and thoughts for him.
Personally, I don’t have much thought about being in the closet, as I understand everyone’s circumstances are different, but nonetheless, I will not put up with homophobic people. For me, i don’t have to announce to the whole world I’m gay, but if someone ask, I will proudly say, “Yes, I’m gay”.
