Real Name: Natasha Pereira
Nickname: Batty Natty, Tasha, Tash, Sharky. (I haven't been called that since I was around 7-8 though.)
Age: 15 (16 in 3 weeks)
How did you find this community?: I found it looking up GLBT communities. All the other ones weren't quite what I was looking for or I felt to intimitated to join. (I just joined LJ maybe 3 days ago. << )
Do you have any suggestions to improve the community?: Not that I can think of.
Are you out?: Sadly not completley.
If not, whats holding you back?: I'm really worried how this will affect my relationship with my family. I know my big sister would be fully supportive, a few of her friends are queer and she supports gay marriage. My mother has her suspicions of me being a Lesbian and has asked me a few times, but I've denied it. She wouldn't throw me out but, when I've asked her on her views of Homosexuality she just said it was "Unnatural" she would occasionally talk about the bible and what it says and blah blah blah...But she also told me if I was gay she'd still love me as much as she does now and that nothing would change that. My biggest worry is my brother. After our father passed away last year he got into religion hardcore. I knew my big brother was homophobic (Maybe even a little racist...) but after getting into religion he kinda went off the deep end with his homophobia. He also goes on about how television and music are evil and some other crazy stuff. (But that's not really what this is about.) He said he would never harm a GLBT person (Because the bible says it's wrong to kill people.) but he disproves greatly of them, considers them evil and says they are all going to rot in hell. My grandparents are another thing that would be greatly disproving of me and would probably never want to see me again, along with cutting me out of the will.
I have come out to most of my friends but told them to not tell my family under any circumstances. Pretty much all of them have been accepting and none of them have stopped being friends with me because of it. I will someday come out to my family, but right now there is a lot of inner turmoil going on in the family and I don't want to add more to the problems everyone is going through.
Are you happy with your choice?: Yes, I am. I feel that at this moment in time this is the best decision to make. I feel when the family's problems have resolved at least a little bit I will inform them. At this time it would cause nothing but more trouble.
