Okay so I don't have a problem with my sexuality but my family does. They've always disapproved as a teen when I brought up the idea of bisexuality but were never the staunch anti-gays that you here about in the U.S.
I've struggled with mental issues caused by my sexuality and other problems in general (autism). I dropped out of HS and failed a while before getting a very good GED after going on meds. I got into college which my family paid for and I was grateful for that.
I made a mistake last week. I went to a gay bar for the first time in my life and got a lot of pics taken. I was so drunk as I'd never gone out and made the stupid mistake of sending my good times to my cousin with me having drinks with another guy thinking she was more open minded than my parents.
That was a bad idea. She basically sent the image to my mother and she said I'm out of the house for being a 'man whore'. My parents have said that I have until the first week fo September to get out. I'm going to be homeless. and see no hope but suicide. I've applied for jobs everywhere but not getting any and the fact that I'm in my early 20s and never worked more than a summer job in a warehouse is against me. I don't really want to die but see no other options. I don't know what to do honestly.
Thank you for telling us about this. I want to tell you that you did not make a mistake, your cousin and parents are mistaken, and should not have treated you this way. Being bisexual is normal, going and having a good time and a bar is normal.
Sometimes families have a hard time accepting someone’s gender or sexuality and say or do things because they are shocked. They might change their mind and come to realise that it’s not a big deal, but this can take time. When I came out a bisexual my Mum said she couldn’t imagine me having a girlfriend fitting into our family. Now she’s very supportive and just happy I have someone who makes me happy. I have friends who have had to walk away from unsupportive family but have found people who accept and support them to become chosen family. You can choose what is right for you.
Do you have any friends or family you could talk to about this? If you are feeling like life is not worth living please reach out to someone you trust. HERE is a link to a list of LGBTQ support lines and HERE you can find support with housing. You can also look at HERE or call 988 for support if you are feeling suicidal.
Things are difficult at the moment but you can have a brilliant future ahead of you filled with people who accept you for who you are.
