    I Am Gay and I Am Human

    I am a gay 42 y/o man. I am not proud to be gay or ashamed of it either. To me saying one is proud to be gay is like saying I am proud to have blue eyes. Being gay is only one trait I have inherited and there is more to me than my sexuality. My peeve is when people find out I...

    Nature Or Nurture? Don't Know, Don't Care!

    I don't know if I was born this way or if it happened after I was born. And you know what? I don't care. Really. I know that I'm gay, and I know that i'm not gonna change, but I don't know if it's biological or psychological. And that's ok with me. Frankly, the science I've...

    I lied to myself for 40 years.

    Had two marriages, 3 kids and eventually found out I was gay. I am so shy as to never fully express myself in public. I express my lie instead. No one knows this and it probably reads really badly because it is so hard to write about
