    I'm out of the closet

    and accepted by my mom at last! Oh yeah, and my little brother. LOL. Well a few nights ago, the 30th of July, I got a phone call from the cousin I talked to a few months ago about me being gay. Just small talk at first, and then I ended up talking to her a bit about this...

    2013

    It has been a long time since the last time a shared a “story”, Yet, so many things have happened in my life (mostly good), that I have decided to once more sit down and share. Truly 2012 was a blessed year for me. I had my social “coming-out” as a gay man…and to be...

    Say for instance a new born baby boy has to gay

    fathers. He grows up. Do you think he'll have interest in boys because his parents are gay or will that not have an effect on him. I feel in some cases a child can be brought up gay if that makes sense or can be persuaded to be gay. I don't think every child who is (LGB) are...

    It's strange, I have a freeing feeling

    even typing out the words, "I'm Gay". :) I want to be myself, tell my friends, tell my family... I want to be free from feeling like I am not ok. I know that it won't all be peachy, but I have to be true to myself no matter what.

    I am a "Gay" man engaged and awaiting for Illinois laws to approve of what I consider natural born civil right. I am glad to say that one day our children will ask. "Why where gays hatted?" Then I can reply "because love wasn't excepted back when I was younger that's why today 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...

    Still Just Me

    Having finally accepted that I am gay and am truly only attracted to other men it hasn't changed a damn thing about me except who I am with. Society has labeled gay men as a specific way that makes people think we're less of a man than one who is straight and have to act a...

    I'M A Gay Man That Hates Being Stereotyped

    I am, by definition, a gay man but so much is assumed with using that word to describe me as a person. I hate the stereotypical effeminate gay man, I hate that gay culture is foolishly so self absorbed and narcissistic that they can't see how absurd they look in comparison to...

    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...

    The Black Gay Way

    I'm a black gay male in my mid 20's living in New York City. I came out at the age of 21. The life I must admit was very tempting and alluring. Half naked men, drugs, clubs, parties, sex, etc. I always knew I liked dudes but like most men I was afraid. The rough closed minded...

    Molested Straight.

    I was mollested by my brother from age six and up until I was sixteen. That was ten years of hell, brought on by sodomy. Once the Stockholm effect wore off, I learned to hate gays. I had countless journal entries in which I'd written entire essays about the evils of...
