Dear students of Creekwood High. As anyone with a half decent data plan already knows, a recent post on this very website declared that I was gay. The delivery left something to be desired, but the message is true. I am... gay. For a long time, I was killing myself to hide that fact. I had all these reasons, it was unfair that only gay people had to come out, I was sick of change, but the truth is, I was just scared. First, I thought it was just a gay thing but then I realised that no matter what, announcing who you are to the world is pretty terrifying cause what if the world doesn't like you. So, I did whatever I could to keep my secret. I hurt the best, most important people and I want them to know that I'm sorry. I am done being scared. I'm done living in a world where I don't get to be who I am. I deserve a great love story. Disclaimer, this is about to get romantic as F. So, anyone adverse to gratuitous feelings kindly click over to the BuzzFeed quiz or resume the porn you paused to read this. This guy that I love once wrote that he felt like he was stuck on a Ferris wheel. On top of the world one minute, rock bottom the next. That's how I feel now. I couldn't ask for more amazing friends, more understanding family, but it would be all so much better if I had someone to share it with. So Blue, I might not know your name or what you look like, but I know who you are. I know you're funny and thoughtful. You choose your words carefully and that they're always perfect and I know that you've been pretending for so long it's hard to believe that you can stop. I get it. Like I told you at the very beginning, I'm just like you. So Blue, after the play, Friday at 10, you know where I'll be. No pressure for you to show up but I hope you do. Because you deserve a great love story too. Love, Simon.

SIMON: Dear students
of Creekwood High School,
As anyone with a half-decent
data plan already knows,
a recent post
on this very website
declared that I was gay.
The delivery left something
to be desired,
but the message is true.
I am... gay.
For a long time, I was killing
myself to hide that fact.
I had all these reasons.
It was unfair that only
gay people had to come out.
I was sick of change.
But the truth is
I was just scared.
COACH: Come on, Garrett.
Let's go!
SIMON: At first I thought
it was just a gay thing.
But then I realized,
no matter what,
announcing who you are
to the world
is pretty terrifying
because what if the world
doesn't like you?
So, I did whatever] could
to keep my secret.
I hurt the best,
most important people.
And I want them to know
that I'm sorry.
I am done being scared.
I'm done living in a world
where I don't get
to be who I am.
I deserve a great love story.
Disclaimer, this is about
to get romantic as eff,
so anyone adverse to
gratuitous feelings
kindly click over
to the BuzzFeed quiz
or resume the porn
you paused to read this.
Did you even use the ladder?
SIMON:
This guy that I love once wrote
that he felt like he was stuck
on a Ferris wheel.
On top of the world
one minute,
at rock bottom the next.
That's howl feel now.
I couldn't ask
for more amazing friends,
a more understanding family.
But it would all
be so much better
if I had someone
to share it with.
So, Blue...
I might not know your name
or what you look like.
But I know who you are.
I know you're funny
and thoughtful.
That you choose
your words carefully
and that they're always perfect.
And I know that you've been
pretending for so long
it's hard to believe
you can stop.
I get it.
Like I told you
at the very beginning,
I'm just like you.
-GIRLS: Hi, Simon.
-SIMON: What's up?
SIMON: So, Blue...
after the play, Friday at 10:00,
you know where I'll be.
No pressure for you to
show up, but I hope you do.
Because you deserve
a great love story too.
Love, Simon.
