I think I always knew to a degree that I didn't fit into the 'heterosexual' mould that the world forces upon us. I remember never really liking boys but conditioning myself to talking about them like I did because that's what all of my friends did and I didn't want them to think I was 'out of the ordinary'. The thing is, I had never really been exposed to the word lesbian or seen lesbian relationships around me when I was younger. I didn't really know that that was something I could identify with, until I reached intermediate school.

I would watch TV shows and immediately be drawn to the female characters and then one of the shows introduced a lesbian couple and I think that is when it hit me. All of a sudden, there was a new kind of relationship that I could relate to. Whenever I would dream about my future it would end up with me and another girl.

I stuck to the term bisexual for a while, thinking that maybe if I said I still liked boys I would somehow still seem normal. I remember when I finally got the courage to come out to my dad I was in my first year of high school. When my dad got home I told him I had something to tell him and before I could even get it out I started crying. Eventually my brother told him what was going on and he hugged me and told me he didn't care who I loved and that I was his daughter regardless. Later that night, he told me over the dinner table that if he was being honest, he was surprised boys were even in the question. About a year later I came to terms with the fact that no, I was not bisexual. While completely valid, I just did not fit that label.

In 2016 a safe space for LGBTQ+ students was introduced in our school in the form of a club named 'Spectrum', a place where students can go and be comfortable with other students who they can more easily relate to. It is coming up to four years since I first figured out that I liked girls and now I live a happy life where I feel completely comfortable in my sexuality, and my friends and family support me a hundred percent. I know that I personally have been very lucky in my experience, but unfortunately not everyone can say that.

I want to share my story in order to encourage people to educate themselves about the LGBTQ+ community, to realise that there isn't anything wrong with loving who you love and, ultimately, to encourage people to lead a more accepting life. We love who we love, there's nothing we can do to change that. Nor should we have to.
