Brady Eberline, a sophomore in acounting and Spanish.
On October 3rd, 2019, I came out to my parents. Coming out was one of the toughest things I've ever done. I shed a lot of tears when I came out, but my family embraced me with love and acceptance.
I was worried for a while that people would find out in my fraternity, but once I came out to everyone, everyone was extremely supportive.
Coming out was extremely difficult, but I am so glad that I did, and it has easily been the best thing I have ever done. I know for a lot of people, it can be scary. My best advice is that people who love you will still love and accept you for you.
