I might be aging myself with this, but.... Spencer from South of Nowhere. Her struggles with adjusting to life at a new high school, navigating different relationships with both men and women while fighting her true gay self from coming out of the closet — just so she could be accepted by society, her peers, her family and herself — are all too familiar. Eventually, in spite of everything, she learns to accept herself and accept the fact that she’s in love with her best friend, Ashley. Plus, the guy she dated briefly, Aiden, realizes she’s gay, helps gently pull her out of the closet, and turns out to be one of her best friends too. My coming out experience was similar. South of Nowhere was on at a time when I really needed it, when I really didn’t want to be gay, tried to be bi, tried to be straight, and finally stopped fighting who I really am.
