SO HAPPY TO BE BACK!!
I’d like to begin by acknowledging the Wurundjeri and Boon Warrung peoples of the Kulin Nation who are the Traditional Custodians of the land in which headspace is situated on. I would like to pay respect to Elders past, present, and emerging and their continuing connection to land, waters and culture. I’d also like to acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land from which you are accessing this chat from, and would like to pay my respect to Elders past, present and emerging. If you’d like to find out what land you are on, check out this link https://aiatsis.gov.au/explore/articles/aiatsis-map-indigenous-australia
Welcome to tonight’s Qheadspace group chat. As peers, we can all seek to support and build each other up through our personal experience and understanding. Hopefully tonight we can discuss our experiences, advice, stories and reflections to each other. We recognise it takes a lot of bravery to speak up and talk to your peers, so with that in mind, I encourage you all to be respectful, understanding and support everyone within the chat.
I would also encourage you to use a nickname (to maintain your privacy), and tell us a little bit about yourself like your age, so we can keep the flow of the conversation.
A couple of things before we start:
*If you require urgent assistance please contact 000
*It would be a great idea to familiarise yourself with our community guidelines so we are all on the same page
*When you submit your message it should come up straight away, unless our system has flagged the message for review
*If your message has been flagged to our moderators, don’t stress! It will just take an extra minute to pop up
*If your message needs to be edited or removed, we will contact you by private message
*Please respect one another, we want to develop a warm and welcoming community so that we can all share our stories.

I guess my advice for coming out was that for the first few times I've come out now, I firstly told people I KNEW would be supportive eg other LGBTQ people or friends 9f my who had LGBTQ friends

oh yes, choosing to come out to the people you feel safest with is always the best way to go, glad you've got that supportive network cactus!

Slothching
Moderator
19 Jan. 6:30 pm
Hmmm i also am in a similar situation so I am not out to my family - as a general rule I just tell all my friends to not bring it up on social media or tag me in anything and if I post about it it's because I have already blocked my family from the post for safety reason
Rain

oo yeh makes sense - i get a bit worried when friends post some queer vibe pics too

Feel like it's easier to avoid slip ups when you just ask them to keep off the topic entirely on social media!

Sorry to randomly jump in but while we're on the topic of coming out, when do you guys reckon would be a good time to come out to my friends/parents? Because I'm not sure if they'd take it well but if they won't I don't wanna deal with that for the next 5 years

@Divya, i dont think there is a best time to come out. Its probably best to do it when you are safe and comfortable to do so. really, everyone comes out at differnt times for different reasons, so its up to you when you feel ready to :)

yeah agreed with all of the above - it's all about how safe and comfortable you feel about the idea of coming out!

Based on these chats ppl do it at very different times, sometimes with similar or really different responses! I guess you can think also about how they responded to Shreya's identity when they accidentally came out - does this make it feel like a safe space for you?
Shreya
Participant
19 Jan. 6:36 pm
@Divya, I know I said I'd shut my mouth but you know how difficult it is for me lmao. When you wanna come out is your decision but if you think it's better to wait and you're having trouble with managing the hiding part of it, I recommend joing support groups and forums adn stuff like that. It was what kept me sane when gender theray didn't even seem like a possibility for me. If you can't tell mom and dad tell as many people as you can

yeh - im kinda like if my bro can intro whoever as his gf and no one questions it then i feel like i have the right to do that too
tiffanymaree
Participant
19 Jan. 6:38 pm
i agree with all of you. @divya - what you're feeling is very very normal. im in a similar position. my closest family know i am questionung but thats all. im still unsure of how they will react when i tell them in queer. just know that if you arent comfortable to coming out, you most certainly dont have to. what i did before telling my parents that i was questioing was i out a small LGBTQIA+ pride flag in my bedroom and if they asked, at first i just said i was an ally. i found this a really great way to get a sense of how they fell about that sort of thing. so as long as you are 100% comfortable, maybe you could try something like that to see their reaction maybe

19 Jan. 6:40 pm
Not exactly advice about what is the right time but rather the opposite - a few months ago my family and I had my first good interaction in awhile and I felt this overwhelming desire to come out to them. I had to remind myself not to do anything in the heat of the moment and allow myself to sit with the thought before deciding if i was really ready. I ended up deciding against it. I think this might be applicable when you have complicated relationships with your family. The idea of being able to be myself around them is enticing but it's always good to make sure it's a safe space to do so?

and gathering a bit of a support system that u know will be supportive no matter what can help when ur approaching coming out to ppl u feel might be a bit iffy - that can be friends, other fam, counsellors, teachers etc.

oh i did the exact same thing @cactus01 and it turned ot to be a really great reaction. i also found having a flag in my room, if i was every feeling scared or alone, id just stare at it and it would remind me that there is an ENTIRE community of poeple out there that love and accept me for who i am and whatever i may choose to identify with

Alright what Shreya decided to POINTEDLY BRING UP was that my school has a Trans and Sexuality Alliance, but I'm kinda afraid to go there because I don't know anyone there and I'm not the best at talking to strangers in real life. Also I'm afraid that when my friends see me disappear every monday they'll put two and two together and I'll out myself so oof

If you know someone vaguely, it might be a nice way to slip into the group and have a friendly face there! Definitely don't put pressure on yourself to go every week, but treat the sitch with curiosity and see if it helps! It might help with your want to share a bit about your identity/express yourself if you're not feeling comfy doing so at home

definitely strange that 'coming out' is even a thing given how cis het people don't have to do the same thing. It's okay to not come out and no like the idea of it, but also important to acknowledge how much courage it takes for those who have done it, and respect that :)

It’s a doco on Netflix about an elderly lesbian couple, but it was produced in a way that put the couple on blast for making it harder for everyone in the family because they were gay. It’s hard to explain, like they were such a beautiful and romantic couple but one of them was totally demonised due to the family not liking her (a nephew actually directed the doco!)

This is more specific to trans narratives, but I'm kinda tired of a whole trope for villainous characters in horror movies being 'they're weird and maniacal because they were born a boy but they dress as a girl' or vice versa or other transphobic shit like that. It's demonising and pathologising and kinda fetishisy and just bad overall.

This absolutely isn't true for everyone but going from the conversations we've had here before Milo, If you're trying to hint to your parents that you're queer I think that there is a good chance they could have already got the hint but aren't saying anything because they're waiting for you to be ready.

in a like trans context - i reckon even if whats in the mirror feels like it's not quite right - you're still 100% the you you want to be even if it doesn't quite match outside yet

I actually have been struggling with a bit of dysphoria lately for the first time in years. I went shopping for some new outfits and it got triggered by this one shirt that was very flowy so it accentuated my chest, it's not too bad but I haven't been able to shake it, it's been on my mind for a while.

I'm extremely confident in myself and have already been through the worst of my dysphoria, so it was definitely uncalled for. I think sometimes even after you have been through a journey of self-acceptance and identity questioning etc, sometimes a negative thought still comes up once in a while.
