    I'm at a family reunion right now

    and one of my uncles asked why gay people have to come out and say they are gay. He said, "I don't want to know what people do in bed so why do gay people feel like they have to tell everybody." I agree. Why is it such a big deal for gay people to think they need to inform...

    I'm a Closet Case

    I always felt like I was different. When all the other boys started noticing girls I was still playing my video games - I just didn't know what was so special about them. As the time went on I realized that the ones I like aren't girls - but boys. I though at first that it...

    I'M Tanner And Yes, This Is A First (Gay) Kiss Story ;)

    The first time that I kissed him, I was at my best friend's family reunion. We were 13. He took me around to meet (literally) his entire family. After that, the crowd and the heat overwhelmed us both, so we snuck from the big field to the lake on the other side. It was so cool...

    Tell me what you think of this situation.

    I was thinking about telling my supposedly ( Idk if he's gay or straight) straight crush that I'm gay and I like him. I know I know a lot people say that's a bad idea. However I really started to think about it because the guy I like has 2 moms. Any feedback?

    Gay Is So Hot Right Now

    So, maybe it's just me, but sometimes I really feel a lot of tension with the hetero world, mainly for one reason.  Whether they love us or hate us, straight people see gay people as cool, sort of like the latest accessory that every woman should have and every man who's...

    I'm the only openly gay guy at my high school.

    While I tend to feel proud, brave, and unique, I also feel really alone. It's a weird feeling being the only one of your kind.

    Gay? Yeah, That's Me

    A lot of gay people have said that if they could choose, they'd choose to be straight. Being gay is hard. Yeah, it's hard. But I bet that being straight is. I'm happy just as I am ... If I could choose, I'd choose to stay gay.

    What does the label really mean?

    There's always been a part of me troubled by the label 'Gay'. As a younger man I thought it a funny word for something so hated - not 'happy' at all, seemingly designed as torture. Nothing at all like what the word meant in the old movies from the 30s and 40s I enjoyed watching...

    Can't Come Out

    But not for the typical reasons, not because I am afraid, or because I am in denial. I can't come out because I hate the stereotype that comes with being gay and I hate that a large number of us fit it. When I see an overly feminine gay man I cringe. I guess I don't want to ...

    I think I'm proof that homosexuality is inborn.

    I mean, I grew up in a traditional home in Russia. It wasn't exactly on the agenda, if you know what I mean.
