This is Gina, a 16-year-old from California.
Gina said that she has known she was gay for about a year. Recently, she began to think of ways to tell her dad, mom, and brother about her sexuality.
She said she knew she knew she had to do it her own way.
“I am not the type of person to have a deep, sit-down conversation, so I wanted to tell them in a lighthearted and fun way,” she said.
She came up with what she called a “perfect” plan. She made a sign saying “I’m gay!” and took it on a trip to Disneyland. She then posed with the sign when she was riding Splash Mountain with her mom.
“I love funny ride photos so I figured I could make the sign just in case I decided to go for it, and I did,” she said.
