Gay Teens Are Sharing Their 'Glo-Ups' After Coming Out

By Jaime Lutz

A gay teen posted a before and after picture of herself as an example of a "glow up"—a phrase that usually means a beautifying transformation, or going from an ugly duckling to a beautiful swan. It's something almost every teen goes through. We're all bumbling and awkward during our middle school and high school years, with many of us not hitting our strides until late high school and even college! So it's awesome to see this trend taking shape for gay teens. 

It all started with 17-year-old Caitlin Crowley's glow-up that had nothing to do with her looks, and everything to do with leaving the closet. See it wasn't about the change it looks, rather the big life change for her and her state of being. We're here for it Caitlin!

Crowley told BuzzFeed she is still friends with her date from the first picture, but she's happy to have been dating her girlfriend for a year now and to have been fully out of the closet for the past six months. It's been a huge change in her life for the better.
