Hello everyone. I have 2 friends that are liberal. Couple of times we talked about homosexuality and they said we schould get rights to marry (in Macedonia gay marriages are illegal). Now I want to come out to them (only to those 2 girls) but I am not sure schould I do it (maybe if they know I am a lesbian they wont be friends with me anymore) or something else will happen (they won't be that liberal). Please help, what schould I do.

They seem like a safe bet to me and a good pick for the first people you choose to come out to.  Coming out is a scarey step - but if you read through the posts you will see that it always ends up being a satisfying and rewarding experience.  If you still feel a little unsure, feel them out a little more about their feelings toward the lgbt community.  Perhaps talk about someone who is gay, whether a celebrity or someone in your circle of friends/family and see how they react.

Eventually you will find that living out and proud about who you are is the only way to true happiness.  And - if you do get a negative reaction from someone you should not take it personal.  Remember it is their character flaw - not yours.  And also remember that they have to follow their path to acceptance and most probably will end up doing the right thing.  If they don't automatically accept you, that doesn't necessarily mean they do not love you - it just means they need some time to come to terms with it.

Keep us posted!

I am so happy to hear the news! It is such a freeing feeling isn't it? Sorry for taking so long to respond - I've been out of the country - soaking up the sun in Cancun!

It is fine :). And yes, that feeling is great. I told her in which girl I am in love, we laghed about it she made some jokes (but good, not evil) and I am happy :)
