I Am Queer

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 453 People

    Queer doesn’t mean “don’t label me,

    ” it means “I am naming myself.” It means “ask me more questions if you're curious” and in the same breath means “**** off.”

    I recently came out to some of my closer friends

    as being nonbinary, more specifically as an agender demigirl. I guess I was surprised at how accepting they were and how readily they switched to they/them pronouns by my request. I just feel very loved and I'm glad I have them. I realize that as a dfab individual I won't...

    FYI: the only person

    who can determine what labels and identities are valid and applicable to you is yourself. Don't ever let someone try to question or erase your identity. You deserve better.

    Weird

    I am queer. I am not a homosexual because I have loving relationships with those who identify as male. I am not bisexual, because bi means two and there are more than two genders. Queer means many things. It has allusions to political activism, and it is a word that we had to...

    I Am Queer, But I Haven't Acted On It.

    I never thought I was going to act on my queer feelings because I've been in a heterosexual relationship for the last 4 years and I want it to last forever. But lately my partner has introduced the idea of opening our relationship physically to same sex relations, especially for...

    It Feels Rather Good To Say "i'm Queer"

    So, yeah. I'm queer. You know, the first time I openly acknowledged it was in the counseling office a few days ago. Weird, eh? Well, yeah, I told my counselor about my first--and so far only--relationship with a girl. It lasted all of two months, but I mean it was pretty friggin...

    Fun thing about Hispanics,

    Cubans specifically is that they are perverted as hell but also weirdly religious. They curse and talk about their crotches but the idea of being gay or trams is totally taboo. Maybe it's the machismo bullshit. Hypocrites these folks are hypocrites. This is coming from a Cuban...

    I'm Queer!

    I'm just sitting in a Women's Studies class and got inspired. I've struggled with defining myself and finding where I fit in this world for a long time. At one time I thought maybe I'm trans, I said that I was bisexual for a long time, ecetera. Nothing ever felt right though...

    Can I Be Queer?

    I am going to lay it out there and see where the chips fall. I am a 24 year old man and have been with my partner (female) for 8 years. I enjoy sexual activity with her and I have fathered a son, for whom my love knows no end. However, I am living a lie. I am attracted to men...

    Being A Bit Left Out

    I am bisexual - I have interest in both male and female. Due to this, putting on comments to both sex is very natural for me, but things are bit conservative in my neighborhood. I didn't make a coming-out to anyone yet, so people look on me as a bit sensitive person, or sometimes...

    "queer"

    I always think it's funny when I get called "queer" because for me living any other way would be strange, and just disgustingly awkward. I have never even considered being with a guy, and have always felt attracted to girls. I am masculine and have always been...

    Just in the fact that I have a very odd

    sexuality. Romantically, I identify as panromantic. I feel like I could be in a loving relationship with just about anyone, regardless of who they are or what they identify as. Sexually, I feel like I'm homosexual, but I'd be willing to be with a man(cis in particular) if I...

    I used to play Sailormoon in grade 1 and I'd always be Tuxedo Mask. "Playing" included lots of making out with my best friend who happened to be a girl. When her mom found out, she told me go home and brush my teeth because kissing is gross. In middle school, I was often...

    Most comfortable with "queer" although the rest of the other qualifications we homos require of each other bore me. Who else would submit to such superficial identity tags. My  "story " is not too unusual; early bisexuality(like 6), paternal molestation(stepfather),art,drugs...

    This Is How I Came Out ...

    So I guess when I start thinking about my sexuality and it's manifestations, I feel like I should have know when I was little that I was going to be a little weird. I remember being young (like a little little kid) and playing house/doctor, whatever it's called, with my little...

    Earlier tonight I opened up Word and started typing.  I want to understand myself, I want to learn to be happy, learn what I want in life and then find a way to make it happen.  Over the course of writing, I came to a lot of new conclusions.  Thus far, it's helping and I feel...
