I'm Delaney and I came out as bisexual in the seventh grade. It was the year 2007 and I had just made some amazing friends. I hadn't had close friends until that year and I noticed that they weren't judgmental. They were very friendly and we became close friends almost instantly. I decided that I would come out to them first, hoping that they'd accept me. Luckily, they did and they were very supportive. I next came out to my mom. I was worried because although I knew she was accepting of the LGBT community, I didn't know how she'd react to her daughter being bisexual. I told her one night as she was sorting out her clothes for the next day. Nonchalantly, she replied, "As long as you're happy." I was officially out of the closet. As I've grown older and started college, I've realized that coming out was the best thing I had ever done. I am able to comfortably fight for my rights and I am able to help others. I feel that our society and government have become much more accepting.
