15 LGBTQ People Reveal Why They Will Never Come Out
You've known from a young age that you are attracted to the same sex so why not come out of the closet and let it be known to the world? It's not always that simple, as these LGBT individuals show. There are a lot of reasons why people in the LGBT hesitate to be open about their sexuality. From conservative family views to even fears of death, here's why these people haven't "come out."

Family may not understand...

1
I'm gay but I can't come out to my family because they are Christians and homophobic. My cousin came out as gay and he was kicked out of his home by his parents. I don't know what to do.

And won't support you...

2
I'm a closet lesbian who won't ever be able to ever come out because my parents are against gays. But my heart aches for the love of a girl.

You fear rejection.

3
I've never come out because I already know my family would never accept it

Because of conservative beliefs.

4
I knew I was queer when I was 12-13 years old.

I still can't come out of the closet, because I live in a conservative country and I know that my parents will disown me.

You fear the reaction.

5
I'm gay but I could never come out because of my abusive dad that's living in the past

Families and their beliefs don't always align.

6
I'm Atheist and Bisexual... yet I can't come out of the closet to my extremely Christian and Homophobic family...
