    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.

    I am gay. I don't think I will truly be able to

    find true love without feeling guilty. I can't come out to my parents because I don't think they're exactly supportive, they won't disown me or kick me out of the house but I know they will be disappointed. And I personally prefer white males over asians. I am asian myself and...

    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 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...

    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'm frustrated. I'm frustrated the gay

    community has labels. I'm frustrated that so often being spiritual isn't something gay people talk about. I'm frustrated most gay people I've met approach sex casually. I understand the gay community is grounded in sexual identity, so it will of course be sexual in nature, but...

    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...

    Every time I'm not accepted a piece of constant

    decay inside my chest flakes off, and not just the feeling but actual physical pain. Then it's replaced by a fake sense of comfort and I forget it was even there. And now my "guy" is probably dead somewhere and I've never felt more alone, emotionally and physically.

    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 finally finished coming out to my family!

    I had been out to my mom and my sister for a while, but still had to come out to my dad and my other sister. It takes me a while to work up the courage to do anything, and I honestly had no idea when I'd finally tell them. I eventually told both of them (in the same day...
