Gay and Bi Teens Coming Out More To Parents Now
I’ve been seeing a lot more of this happen myself lately. I think kids nowadays are more comfortable with being gay and bi now that there’s less stigma and shame involved. And I just hope it continues.
A new study shows that there is a record-breaking number of kids coming out to their parents.
“This study is encouraging in that it shows that many teens, including those under 18 years old, are comfortable with their sexuality,” said Moskowitz, an assistant professor of medical social sciences at Northwestern University’s Institute for Sexual and Gender Minority Health and Wellbeing.
Here’s more. They also warn that many are still facing the same issues and stigmas we all faced in the past. But at least it’s progress. And for those of you who think it’s too soon for kids to come out and say they are gay or bi, mind your own business. I knew at 3 years old I was gay and so do most kids. We just never say anything about it. But we do know.
William and Mary Names Building After Gay Historian
Here’s another uplifting post about the college of William and Mary recognizing gay history. I hope we start to see more of this coming, too.

Here’s the link to more. This is very significant. There’s so little gay history mentioned anywhere.
