    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Coming_Out_Day I'm not really sure how to go about a forum post about NCOD, so I guess this will have to do. Hi, I'm Steamworks / AethWolf, and I'm gay. The old crew from PF2 and the newer FiG guys already knew that, but I don't think the EQD newbies have noticed that yet. I've been out to one extent or another for 12 years now (11 if you only want to count coming out to family). I buried and repressed my sexuality from around puberty up until my senior year of high school (2003-2004) when I started finally coming to terms with it. I'd been called a fag for a while leading up to that, so I really didn't want it to be true, so I had quite the time wrestling with not wanting them to be right and wanting to drop all the fake bullshit I threw up to hide it. I initially came out to my online friends (gay furries or allies) as bisexual, and even continued that claim as I came out to my longtime RL friends, but that only lasted about 6 months while I grew comfortable with my attraction to other guys and not treating it so much as a dirty secret. I do feel kinda bad for doing that since it just perpetuates the idea that bisexuality is either a phase or indecisiveness. Anyway, fast forward a bit to 2005. I'd managed to find myself my first boyfriend finally and was pretty happy. However, he lived around 2 hours away, and I couldn't figure out how to cover up heading to Knoxville frequently, so I made up my mind to come out to my mom. I just kinda awkwardly blurted it out and then ran off to college for the day. She was okay with it even if it did take her a while to really get used to the idea. I was just super relieved I wasn't kicked out of the house or anything. She even started getting on her boyfriend when he would make comments about gay people on TV or whatever. It's not exactly inspirational or heartbreaking or even noteworthy, but that's my coming out story. Anyone else want to share their story of coming out as LGBTQ+? Anyone want to raise a hoof and use his thread to take their first step out of the closet? This is a pretty safe place to be out, but, if you're still not comfortable with going public about it, you can drop me a PM here on the forums or hit me up on Steam. Even if you're not sure or just questioning yourself, I think every LGBTQ person has gone through that, so a lot of us are willing to offer support through that regardless of what you eventually settle on. I also realize coming out as something other than straight may be not as much of a thing anymore, but coming out as trans* is pretty important for visibility. Also, please don't feel pressured to come out before you're ready. It's scary, I know. Let it happen when you're ready.

    I don't know if there has been any announcements about this, and I haven't seen any posts on the main site about it, but here in the US Legend of Everfree is now available for streaming on Netflix! I just watched it last night, and it's awesome! All the songs are great, the humor is on point, and the story is really great too!

    Hey. I'm Kat / Kaethela / Nepeta Leijon. For those of you who don't already know, I'm trans. I've been pretty open about it, but I've also been insanely lucky. After repressing it for way too long, I realized continuing to do that would likely kill me entirely. Started with close friends that I trusted, then family, then work. Everyone has been very supportive, and I'm living in Massachusetts, which is one of the best states to do this sort of thing in. That's all I got. Sorry, I'm not much of a storyteller.

    I'm Bi-sexual. You can blame the gay PF2'ers for making me that way, but I'm not ashamed for admitting that, those guys are really nice and it's amazing how compassionate you can be with each other. Curse my Leo-ness. But for the record, I still prefer girls over guys.

    Looks at date. Okay, gotta make a good welcome to make up for coming late. Let start with his name. It asking for a meme.. Cool cool. Their self awareness is to good for me. Have to think of a different way. I can just throw a random meme in there just for the heck of it. It works all the the time~ Only if no one has done it first. Can't do a normal one, because that's not me. Smashes fist the keyboard I have one.. last... hope. They can't have got here earlier than me, right? I can warn them about them~ I'm done. Can't say I didn't try. (Hope you're enjoying the forums, sorry that I wasn't there to welcome you but seeing the people who did for me shows that you were given good treatment. See you around here soon.)

    Back in 2007-2011 I lived in a really crappy town about a state away from where I am now. I hate the city and suburbs. But there is at least 2-3 more good lookin girls, but I still like my main crush, though she can be stubborn and judgmental at times.

    Well, Luna wasn't useless on this one. She managed to use her power to warn Starlight Glimmer. That was something that only she could've done. Not very impressive, I know, but she did it. To me it's not even the idea itself that is the problem. It's that the cartoon keeps trying to do something that is just out of it's reach. It can't use characters like Celestia and Luna (and even Discord) in this sort of story without ruining them in the process. It was made for slice of life stories where ponies are worried about what dress they'll use in the gala. Not to defend a country from a threat like the evil-dark-bad of the season.

    It was also kind cool to see Starlight's old home town and those ponies that live there.

    Mine was "On a Cross and Arrow" by Conner Cogwork when I was relatively new to the fandom. Good memories. Actually, that was the first fanfic I had ever read. Now I read all kinds of fanfiction, MLP or not.
