    No One Knows Except My Best Friend

    I am 15yrs old and in high school. My parents would so freak out if they knew I was gay. Even my friends at school would freak out. I am so afraid of telling anyone because of the negative impact and because I know lots of people can be so very cruel. My parents are devoted...

    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...

    Second post today lol.

    My mom just lectured me about doing early college. She said "college is different, the people aren't as gay as high school kids" she was probably just using gay as an adjective for annoying people (who ironically make fun of me for being gay) but if only she knew. I WISH there...

    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...

    Well yesterday was very unexpected.

    I had a rough night on New Years (almost got arrested) parents got a call at 4am that I was found passed out by the cops. But the parents were in Florida at the time so not much they could do. They got back last night around 5am and I knew there would be a talk in the morning...

    I have crushes on several guys at my school,

    and probably all of them are straight. I could probably get over it if I just knew for sure they wouldn't be interested, but asking about someone's sexuality isn't a great thing to do, especially if you don't know the person well.

    Masculine, Gay and Closeted; Though Everyone Knows and I'm Messed Up.

    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: "...

    I have extremely homophobic parents & family.

    I cant tell them I am gay because my dad has made his strong opinions on the subject of being gay very clear & has stated more then once if his son was gay he would throw me out. I also am an only child so he expects a lot from me. I am still a senior in high school & have no...

    Well. My best friend says to every one he's

    straight but I think differently. In comparison to his other friends, we treat each other with more respect and like nicer than any other people do. I was just wondering how I could ask him if him and I should be together or not?

    I'm a 20 year old closeted gay/bisexual male.

    I don't even know at this point whether I'm gay or bisexual. I've always found myself more sexually attracted to guys but could never imagine settling down with a guy for the rest of my life. Am I in denial? Who knows. Its 1 in the morning and I'm home from university. I've been...

    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...

    Where I am- I'm out as gay to mostly everybody.

    The only ones who don't know are those outside of my friend group and majority of my family. I don't feel a need to chant "I'm gay" to everyone I meet. Does it matter who you like? Love is love. Just be you.

    Do we really have to announce our sexuality?

    I mean, do we really have to tell to other people that we are gay? My mother is a girl and never did she announce it just to be recognized as one. LIFE!!!!!!!!!!

    I've only come out to five people (all friends

    from school), and only two of them really know I'm gay (I told the other that I'm bi). I'm hoping that eventually I can tell all my friends the truth, but for now I think this is good.

    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.

    and happier then I am now. No one would care that I was "different." Maybe I would be have a boyfriend and be able to treat him like a king and he would do the same. In a perfect world, I wouldn't be laying in bed cuddling my pillow and wishing things could be different..
