Coming out on Facebook still a thing?

Unread postby SebPeace » 16 March 2019, 20:04

Hey guys!

So I've been debating coming out to my family via facebook for the longest time now and I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas on what to say/write? Most of my family are conservative Colombians so I'm pretty scared about it, even though I'm like 22 :facepalm2:

I've come out to my friends and my immediate family but I reallyyyy don't know if even coming out to the rest of the clan is worth it. What do you guys think?

I recently started a Youtube channel and did a coming out video so that people struggling with the process could identity with someone who went through the same thing (I guess??). Would sharing this video on Facebook instead of writing a long post work better?

Thanks in advance!!

(btw if you want to watch the video, watch it here! )

I would share the video and maybe post a rainbow flag with it. But it depends if they might have bad reactions maybe it will be too much to deal with and you should come out later. Like with a boyfriend.

It's entirely up to you, if you feel like you'll feel better by spreading the news, then just go for it. If you think the way things are right now won't affect you, then just carry on! :)
