These two teen girls found really fun ways to come out as gay, and people love them for it
Coming out can be one of the hardest things to do.
But as these two American teens show, sharing news about your sexuality doesn't have to be a huge ordeal.
A Californian teenager named Gina had a novel idea to come out Disneyland Florida - "the happiest place on earth" - on a family holiday with her mam.

The teen made a sign that reads ‘I’m Gay’ and decided to whip it out for the camera on the tourists’ favourite Splash Mountain rollercoaster.
She shared the image on Twitter, and since posting the amazing photo has had 9,000 re tweets.
People from all over the world have been praising the teen for the imaginative and brave way she decided to declare her sexuality.
@ginaslife3 you are my hero hahaha ?

The good vibes just keep coming! In a similar story this week, 17-year-old Kinsey Ratzman, from New Jersey, recently came out, and her supportive parents encouraged the teen to share her news with her friends on social media.
