Recently I just discovered in me (though I think I've known all along) that I'm pansexual, and I don't know how to tell people that I think should know. I live on an island with only a few hundred people here, and the whole town operates as one big dysfunctional family. Everyone knows everything about everyone.
This means that I'm friends with everyone in my highschool and that coming out would set me a part from them. I've one friend who graduated from here a few years back who came out about being gay, but he said he had a hard time even though his classes were a lot nicer than those I'd need to deal with.
I feel like not telling would be keeping a part, an important part, of me hidden from those I consider more or less close, but I don't want them to look at me any different, or in the case of the girl's basketball team, be any less huggy-hang offy-physical, I don't want them to be afraid of me, as my attitude and tendancies set me apart from them enough as it is and I'm only just being accepted.
I was just wondering if anybody had any advice about what I could do?
Lots of luv,
