Tell Us What Helped You Most When You Came Out

Share your tips to help others on their journey.

The decision to come out is an extremely personal one that takes a lot of courage.

It's a long and sometimes difficult journey, and many know that you don't just come out once but multiple times.

So what helped you most when you came out?

Did you seek guidance from LGBTQ friends?

Were you inspired by a particular person in the community?

Did you write, journal, or throw yourself into a creative project?

Or do you just have a funny anecdote of something that happened during this time?

Let us know in the comments below! Your stories and tips can help give inspiration to others who are considering coming out. The best responses will be featured in a future BuzzFeed sponsored post.

Just a heads up — anything you send us is covered by the regular BuzzFeed User Terms. Also, check out This Free Life to see how others are helping our community.
