How does it feel to come out?

Pivotal. Liberating. But, of course, it is terrifying at first.

These six young people have sat down and revealed how they came out to their families and friends - and, for some, the news shook their parents to the core.

Watch the emotional and enlightening video for yourself below:

We think the saddest moment is the woman who reveals her mother didn't speak to her for three whole months after she came out as gay - but at least they are working past that initial reaction now.
