When I finally came out to people that I was gay, all hell broke loose in school. I was in the 7th grade. My name is Gigi and I'm a 16 year old Lesbian. It started when I told my best friend. She ended up running and telling everyone else. Soon, it spread like perfume across the whole middle school. "Gigi is an Emo Lesbian", "Gigi needs Jesus, she will burn in hell." In the locker rooms, " Hey stand in front of my stall, I don't want that fag to look in while I'm changing." They would stick notes in my lockers and naked pictures of girls with writing on it asking if I liked that. I would have people "Preaching" to me about going to church and following the bible. It was horrible. I took it for 6 months which is 1 semester. Until 1 day I got jumped by a group of girls because they claimed I was checking out one of their friends. That's when I told my science teacher who was also a lesbian and it all just stopped stopped. The bullies ad charges filed against them and they got expelled. I thought that day would never come. A lot of things changed, I stopped cutting myself, I started eating again and I made a lot more friends when 8th grade started. I'm happier than ever with my life. Once you've had enough, You've had ENOUGH. Speak up and fight. Don't be a victim, be and Upstander !
