    I'm an 18 year old virgin male

    who has had a crossdessing fantasy all my life. I have already wrote 2 questions that were way to long so I'll keep this short. I have never been with a man or woman but I love crosser dressing. Am I gay? Can I tell anyone? Should I see a therapist? This constant fear and...

    I'm a closet pansexual.

    Even if I did come out, nobody even knows what that means. But it doesn't matter, I will love who I love and be attracted to what I'm attracted to.

    "She knew this transition was not

    about becoming someone better, but about finally allowing herself to become who she'd always been." I am learning to accept what I have always felt. Trying to overcome what I always believed was "wrong", be it by my Catholic upbringing or social/environmental factors. This...

    This Woman, Er, Me...

    Once upon a time, there was a woman, yours to the truly, who was on EP for awhile and developed a bad case of toxic profile. Brought on, perhaps, by her having initially arrived here with the intent to spill the beans about her lifetime spent in the closet. Stories were written...

    Why, is this so hard!

    Why are people so judgmental and have no knowledge on the subject but sure do know condemnation!

    I am 14 and I'm currently in the closet.

    I've always had a feminine behavior, and I've shared many of the same interests as girls. I didn't realize that I was truly gay until 6th grade, when I began to develop feelings for cute boys and-- well, *********** to hot guys on the Internet. I've had countless memories of...

    I am a closeted: Pansexual Bigendered

    person I can't imagine coming out. I married a straight bio male and that makes me invisible. I'm also afraid that the queer community won't accept me because even though I have gender dysphoria I don't plan to transition and even though I like women I am in a heterosexual...

    My Avi

    My avi is not me. It's the gorgeous Mary Stuart Masterson as Idgie Threadgoode in Fried Green Tomatoes, which was a great lesbian love story that the film turned into a buddy story, but whatever-- the gay undercurrent prevailed;)

    I feel that I am a person no one would expect

    to be anything but straight. I'm masculine. I go to church. But that doesn't change who I am. I'm bisexual and know one knows yet. Most days, I'm grateful that no one knows what I am, but sometimes I wish that the people closest to me would know.

    I Might Be The Hardest Wisher In The Whole World.

    Since I was little I've done this thing where even though I know nothing will happen, I'll shut my eyes so tight it hurts and wish for something. I have no reason to. I've grown up in a healthy family who loves me dearly and I've never wanted for anything. But shut inside a...

    I don't feel good today, I feel as if those I call friends already know the secret that I kept from eveyone except my friends on EP and some close ones.. I feel awful. I came here in EP to know more about other people and other things but also to know myself more than anyone else...

    I'm bisexual, and it sucks

    because I really don't want to be. I just want to be normal. Why do I have to be so disgusting? Why ME? Of all people, did it really have to be me?

    Do the people who claim this; realize that they are actually implying that, Everyone has homosexual feeling just some CHOOSE to act on them. So when they say that they are implying they, too, are at least bisexual. And therefore, are sinners and should also be sent to hell...

    A Crush On My Bully

    As a kid I was bullied every day by this one boy who didn't know how to show that he liked me. His name was Jerry. At the time, I had no idea he had a crush on me. And he was afraid because I was also a guy and he thought there was something wrong with being gay. He used to tease...

    Actually, I'm not really sure if I'm bisexual or if I'm just with guys because it's socially acceptable. I've only been with one woman, but I've been trying to get closer to women all of my life just so I could have that intimacy with them. It's all about intimacy for me. That...

    I've accepted my sexuality from quite a while now but I'm still in the closet because my family and friends will never support me for being attracted to women. I am not strong enough to take the risk to come out only because there is a lot of stigma attached to being a Muslim...

    I believe sexuality is ever-changing.

    That being said, the best I can identify as is a bisexual but heteroromantic female. I have never told anyone this, and here I am, telling the internet. It feels good though to say it anonymously.
