If you feel safer being in the closet around your family then do what you need to to stay safe. However, if you know that they will accept you for who you are perhaps searching for help and support there is an option to work up to. If not, there should be other trusting adults or people who can be a barrier between you and the bullies. It is perfectly alright to be different, but also know that there are people out there who are not included in that 'everyone' you said is at your school. You are different. There's nothing wrong with that. Please continue to be yourself because there are tons of people in the world who wouldn't want you any other way.
My sister Dogice seconds this and wished for me to tell you that you are perfect the way you are. Be safe, be happy, love who you love and love who you are, and there is nothing wrong with being different. The bullies wont be the only ones who have a voice in this. There are people on your side.
