I Am Gay

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 11,890 People

    So, I was out to lunch with a coworker,

    and as we are entering the building a random lady was commenting on my hair. It apparently looked "fierce". The next day walking into class, a smidge late, to deliver my celebratory speech, my professor was talking about unexpected things "like Spencer walking into class...

    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'm 100% gay but if I keep it real I could

    probably sleep with a female 🌚 tbh sexuality is a lot less black and white than many believe. And I don't wanna say being gay is a choice, but If I really didn't want to be gay I feel like I could be with a woman. But being gay is too cool and I'm all for it so who even knows...

    Ok, so apparently I didn't make myself clear

    before. So I'm going to need to do this again. When Corey and I left EP last time, we left Drew behind. Now remember he had got a lot of fame very quickly. This went to his head and he went and posted some bullshit stories about him spending the night with me. What you read...

    Hello everyone, a lot of people have been

    I rejected a guy who had a crush on me

    because I wanted to remain just friends. You would think it'd boost my confidence, but to be honestly I feel uglier and lonelier than ever. Is that normal?

    He says he's falling

    for me, as I am him. Should I once again open the doors to myself for him and take a great risk? or should I have myself kept away til it's right. I'm falling hard an quite deep but that's not how I express it to him. I guess my world will take its turn in a few days time.

    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...

    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...

    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.
