LGBT: Tips for Coming Out in College
Above all, I wished that I’d been more confident about my sexuality. I wish that I’d stopped the girl who’d taken me on a coffee date when she pulled a Bible out of her purse. I want to shake the flaky alt-girl who live-tweeted her boyfriend on our date. For all of the frat boys who yelled out of their cars to proposition threesomes, I wish that I’d told you outright that I liked girls as much as you did.
I never want to be in a position where wanting to be accepted outweighs my desire to be accepted as who I am. Don’t let people use your sexuality as an exoticism. College is, as many a motivational video has promoted, a time for self-discovery, but it’s also a time for self-affirmation.
Above all, be confident in who you are and the rest will fall into place.
