I Am a Closeted Gay

Please read and give advice, I want it all 3,924 People

    I've been confused and gay

    for quite some time now. I'm now 17; I started attaining a sexual attraction for males during the 6th grade (around 12-13 years old?). Although my attractions were never aimed at any real males (by that I mean I would stare at pics of good-looking Anime dudes lol), I never...

    I have always known that I am gay

    and have never ever thought about coming out of the closet, but now as I am getting older and relationships and desires are becoming more common for people my age, I want to express who I really am to people but don't think I ever can! I don't want to disappoint anyone or ruin...

    Would anyone like to start a movie review?

    I love watching gay themed movies. A couple of older ones that stand out are "Clapham Junction", and " A Home At The End Of The World" (Believe it or not, Collin Farrell is in that one). Any takers?

    I don't know where to put my eyes.

    On the streets, whenever I see some hot guy, I look twice before looking away. It's just that tension building up from the heart to the throat, drying up. It sucks to be alone without anyone to share this to. Sexuality is not a shame. Shame.

    My Name Is X And I'M A Recovering Homophobe

    I am not a closeted gay. I was never really closeted. I was a homophobic homosexual and I may be one still. The product of a freakishly conservative, ignorant, and fearful family - God bless the Bible belt. Gays were sinful, subhuman, and deserved to die of AIDS. In retrospect, I...

    It's Never Too Late

    As a kid I was bullied every day by this one boy who didn't know how to show that he liked me. His name was Jerry. At the time, I had no idea he had a crush on me. And he was afraid because I was also a guy and he thought there was something wrong with being gay. He used to tease...

    So I'm a 15 years old boy?

    and I live in a non religious family, and I'm still in the closet. The issue about coming out isn't that religion coincides with my sexuality but rather that tradition (my parents are immigrants) prevents me from being who I am. I know my parents believe sexuality is a mental...

    Gay In The Military

    I've been in the Military for about 5 years, and I've know I was gay for a lot longer than that. Its been hard being a closeted gay in the Military, and I think everyone knows how your typical "male" can be. I've been pretty good at hiding it for sometime, but i've never really...

    I know my step-mother is closed-minded.

    She doesn't like going out her comfort zone. Me being gay is out her comfort zone. She has definitely voiced her opinions on the LGBT community. My dad would definitely be more understanding. He's tried to even changed my step-mother's views on subjects like the LGBT community...

    When I accepted I was gay I told myself

    that I wasn't going to get married or look for a significant other. But years later, now, I'm not sure I'm wanting that anyymore. I don't want to be alone. I thought not looking for a SO ever would allow me to please my family (very homophobic) and consolidate my religion better...

    That is in love with his straight womanizing

    friend & work colleague. His smell, smile, face, laugh, voice drives me insane...but he'll never love me the way I want him to love me, his constant flirtation with the ladies says it all. Unrequited taboo love hurts...I love you KM, I wish you loved me as well??

    Closeted Gay Male. I Hate My Life

    I am gay and closeted to my friends. In some ways it's stupid. The people I call my friends have known me for 10+ years and there have been comments regarding my sexuality as I've never had a girlfriend or talked about girls. My response has always been: "...
