a couple months ago i came out to my family as pan and luckily everyone was supportive. almost everyone in my friend group is queer in some shape or form; 2 of my friends are bi, one is gay, one is questioning and two are trans. the two that are trans aren’t out to their family since they may not be supportive so i try to support them as much as possible. it’s a really good space to be and we all have each others back in the group. im moving to another town and changing schools, and i thought it’s a great chance to start fresh. well, that’s when it it me that i if im going to change, i should be comfortable with who i am and what i identify as; creating my trans awakening. i told my friends and my therapist about it, how i want to identify as a male, go by Elliot/Eli, wear a binder, etc. As a girl i’m very self conscious about how people view me and what their expectations are of me, and i feel like a male identity would make me more willing to put myself out there and be myself. i want to start transitioning and make progress before the school year starts, but i need to be out to my parents for that. it’s not that they won’t accept me or anything like that, but i don’t know how to bring it up or what to say. i don’t exactly have anyone to go to other than my friends and i want to be out next week to give myself a good amount of time to prepare for the year.

TL/DR, i want to come out to my parents as trans within a week and i don’t know how or what to say
