    A friend of mine, who I haven't seen in years

    and I've only spoken to on the phone once in 5 years has posted on fbook that he is in a relationship. Why does this **** me off so much? Well. I suppose I had always hoped we would some day be an item. We went to the same school and we're victims of the same abusive regime...

    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.

    I have been on a kind of journey to try to

    understand myself and my history. A journey of discovery to try to work out why I had a 2 nervous breakdowns and what made the boy most likely succeed the boy who crashed. It happened that I had been going out with a girl and she ditched me. No other boy or anything, it just...

    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...

    Here is my coming out story.

    Let's start from the beginning, I've known that I'm gay for a while now and thinking back on my childhood I was always in to more girly things like bratz and things like that instead of the boy toys that my big brother played with. At first I didn't want to believe that I was...

    This is gonna offend some people* but Dear gay

    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...

    I walked into my English class today

    and the guy I like said I'm his new English buddy. (Because me and him have to move into another class), anyway when he said that I just thought to myself "I'll be way more than just your English buddy if you want".

    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...

    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...

    Just Coming Out...

    Well, it happened! When I was 18, back in 2008, I came out about being gay. I grew up living in a strict-form Christian where being gay, bi, les and especially trans was not only a taboo subject, but a sin as well. I was told to "never be that way", that I had to find myself...

    Why do people keep asking me how big it is?

    I. am. not. interested. Just because I'm gay doesn't mean I'm a pervert. In fact, I'm actually a virgin, because I'm afraid anyone I sleep with will to turn out to be a creep. You know, like 90% of people on the internet. You 10% know what I'm talking about.

    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...

    Ive been liking boys

    as long as I can remember and as I got older it only became stronger and stronger. Once I could put a name on how I was feeling, it was like a light came on and I was introduced to a whole new world. I am gay, love it, and wouldnt trade it for anything in the world.

    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 ...
