I Am a Gay Man

    I came out as bisexual in my sophomore year of

    high school, but as junior year was approaching, I was starting to realize that I was truly a homosexual teenager. After I came out of the closet, my friends, family members, teachers, etc. had accepted me. I am now living a good life and feeling proud of being part of the LGBT...

    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...

    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 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...

    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...

    I remember when I first realized I was gay.

    I was a freshmen in high school and I was in the locker room. Puberty is an amazing thing. It really is.

    I am a gay man who likes to help young gays

    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

    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 denied being gay in my 20s

    because I grew up during not only the AIDS paranoia and hearing stories about what happened to Matthew Shepard. But around 2009 I ended up coming out to a gay cousin. In 2011 my best friend found out and told me he was okay with it and asked me when I was going to come out to...

    So a guy at work said "you should be ashamed to

    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...

    Another night laying on the couch,

    getting over my ex has gotten easier. But, still some nights r harder than others. We manage to stay friends, but still in love with him. There is another guy that really likes me but I can't seem to be comfortable with him. I can't get Chris out of my mind.
