    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.

    18 Long Years

    I'm an eighteen year old gay boy who came out in April of 2012. My story is long because I have known that I was gay almost all my life but I will stick to the main points. My first experience was in second grade with another boy. I was confused for a long time until around fifth...

    I am gay as ****. No one knows

    I just came out to my sister.

    It wasn't the easiest thing but it wasn't too bad either. She came and gave me a hug. Which lasted for like a minute. We cried and she said she loved me no matter what and she'll help me tell mom and dad and that she'd support me no matter what, even if they didn't. I'm glad I...

    I get so upset when I see younger gay guys

    who base their whole identity of self on sex. It's beyond heartbreaking and scary to hope they don't either become a cautionary tale or that they don't become jaded from trying to find their place amongst a bunch of adults who only want what they want. The messed up part is...

    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...

    When I go to sleep in my bed,

    I think really hard, and imagine his arms wrapped around me, giving me little kisses, telling me he loves me. He's mine! And I know we can't be together now! But I know we will have a lifetime of cuddles and love. Just gotta hang in there for my polar bear

    I did nothing but love you.

    I wonder what I did wrong. All I wanted was for you to be happy. All I can do now is scroll through our conversations and remember you. You were the first guy that I loved, that I fell in love with. It hurts me so much to lose you, but I guess it's what's best for us both. I...

    For a long time I wasn't really sure of myself.

    For many years I thought I was bisexual. I was uncomfortable with my sexuality and went on EP, which is where I met my boyfriend, the love of my life Ryan. And it hit me. I'm gay! I'm GAAAY! After months of dating him, I finally realized I was not bisexual but gay and told him...

    I am gay. People constantly tell me it's a phase

    but I know it isn't. I feel alone this, like others are disgusted. Of course I'm used to this but it still hurts. I'm not that strong anymore. I just need someone to talk to. To open up to.

    My heart aches, my body trembles,

    the loss is unreal, the person I said I would spend my life with is gone due to the most tragic circumstances. He was the one for me, we were two little polar bears against the world, but I guess his dad had other plans. Don't know what to do

    I am a 13 year old teenager who's about to

    become 14 in less than a month. I am gay and would like the world to know. The only thing that I'm afraid of is the reaction my parents would take in when I tell them. I would like to message anyone.

    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...
