You are certainly not alone in your struggle to come to grips with identifying your sexuality and individuality and feeling proud.  Especially in school where friends can be difficult and unaccepting.

One thing you will realize in life is that people are all so different that there is no way to keep them all happy so you might as well make it easier on yourself and live for yourself - make yourself happy.  Another benefit of living for yourself is that you will meet others like yourself, who you can relate to, and live a happy and fulfilling life.

My suggestion would be to join an lgbt support group - either at your school or in your community.  Get your support there - and come out when your damn good and ready!  As far as wearing heels to fit in - don't even go there.  Be yourself and happiness will follow.  You may loose some friends - but were they really friends?  And, if you do loose those friends, that leaves an opening for new friends who relate to you and you will form a tighter bond.

Remember - it is their character flaw - not yours!  And remember - you can not live your life for others - because you will only be happy if you live true to your soul.  Living your life for other's acceptance will only cause unhappiness and an empty feeling inside.  We all experience unacceptance from others - just a part of life.  Go for it girl - be yourself!  Read through some of these posts and you will see others who have had a similar experience and how free they felt once they finally threw caution to the wind and lived life for themselves!

Keep us posted!
