Straight to a Perfect Future

I used to convince myself that i did support the LGBTQ community when I didn't before. I didn't know anything about LGBTQ or transgender's or gay people before. My parents hid it from me thinking I was too young or maybe because they didn't want to get influenced by it. I got to know about this was I was 13. I got to know from friends of mine. My parents put it in my head that being gay was wrong. I never even gave myself a chance to figure out my feelings. I don't know how to describe it but I was scared of becoming lesbian or transgender, I was scared of having such feelings. As I thought it would ruin that image of a perfect future life I had in my mind. I didn't want to end up losing my entire family. As I knew that many of my family members would simply disown me. So every day I lived in fear, I hoped I would never have such feelings. I would be scared when any of my friends came out as gay. I would act like I supported them but would always keep my distance.

I'm happy to say that I'm not like that anymore. I don't shut out any of my feelings, I support my friends.

The message I wanted to convey is that many of us think that that people are accepting of the LGBTQ community. Although the honest truth is they are not. Parents raise their children in a way that they are scared of even thinking about this idea. They make their kids shut out any feeling they might have. They put it in their head that you can't have a good beautiful life ahead if your gay or a transgender. I believe its completely wrong to force this idea into a kid's head. Make them confused and throw out their emotions and feelings. Forcing them to act like somebody they're not .
