19 College Students Who Are Out At School But Closeted At Home
At school, you're out of the closet and free to be open about your sexual preferences without having to deal with judgment. You're happy with the way your life is and you can be the real you. But there's only one problem: the school year is coming to an end and you're not out of the closet back home. Do you go back in the closet during your time at home or do you finally come out to your family? These 19 college students talk about dealing with that struggle.

What do you do when you're "out" at school but not at home?

I go home from college in 9 days where I have to go back in the closet.
Being open in college then graduating and moving back home (and into the closet is the worst.

Since I'm not out of the closet to my parents, I'm always pretty cautious about what I say and how I act when I'm home. I'm excited to go back to campus and be myself again.

How do you deal with it?
