    I'm gay. I don't wish I wasn't.

    Closeted , I wish I wasn't . Sometimes circumstances keep you a prisoner of your circumstances. Tortured by your need to fully express your innermost thoughts. I am gay. I want to release my sexuality in ways that I've dreamed about. Pray for my deliverance . I know...

    So I was in the park today drawing a fountain

    in my sketchbook when a boy comes and sits next to me. Now there are plenty of empty benches and I started to feel a bit awkward. He then started to talk to me about my drawing and saying that it was good (even though it wasn't) and I started to get shy and almost said that I...

    now where I was in a group of people and in that group were the guys I had found attractive or thought I was attractive. I had all these options in front of me, all the hot ones right there, but instead of staying and seeing what could happen, I left. And the reason why I left...

    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...

    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 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...

    teens between 13-17 All you do is ask for love and wanting a boyfriend which is understandable cause your young I get it. But none of you know what the **** love is! Not even most adults do! So to ask constantly or basically making advertisements for someone to "love" you...

    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 ...

    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.
