Anyone who asks at school, my aunt, my grandma, my mom and her boyfriend, and all of my friends.

My friend Jillian is bi, so she didn't really care at all -- she thought it was cute. Same with any other girls i've told.

My other friends were somewhat surprised, but in the end just said 'all the power to ya' which made me happy.

I'm out to everyone.

Well, I mean, I'm not hiding it from anyone. Some family members don't know, but I'm not actively hiding it. I just don't see the need to make a big announcement. :dunno:

How did the family members that do know find out?

I told the more significant family members announcement-style (like, my mom, for example), but I don't feel any burning desire to tell, say, my aunt that I only see during holidays.

I should wait until everyone's assembled during my family graduation party or something two weeks from now and clank a fork against a glass -- ding ding ding! I have an announcement to make: I like boys! That is all.

"We know, Alex!" they'd say.

So, Alex, in other words you really do see the need to make a big announcement.

Not to people that aren't that important. :dunno:

Yeah, I can see the need for an announcement, one-on-one, to meaningful people, though.

My dad has been dead for eight years, but I never told him before that — he thought faggots should be quarantined and left to die of AIDS, so we never got around to that topic. I haven't bothered to tell my brothers, either (one of them is a sociopathic bigot whom I hate with a passion; the other I don't really talk to that much).

And you thought I was straight? :rofl2: How unperceptive are you?

Everyone except a few members of my family who live in Ireland, but that's only because I see them very rarely (once every couple of years or so) and don't really tend to talk to them because they bore me.

- mum and sis vaguely coz we talk about guys all the time.
- A couple guys at school who I've done naughty things with might have jumped to the crazy assumption i'm gay :keke: but otherwise not really out at skl (though I don't hide it reeeeeeally)
- Came out to 2 girls independantly, neither of whom I'm sure took it seriously.
