    I've known I've been a lesbian

    for as long as I can remember! I've had many secret girlfriends which I've met on Instagram, facebook etc. I have met up with 3 girlfriends, my parents think they were just my friends. I hate having homophobic parents but i do like the risk. If my parents found out I dread to...

    I've known this girl

    for about three years now and it's pretty obvious we both like each other. It took me a long time to accept that she actually liked me because she is so prefect. I mean wow. And also because she would merely drop subtle hints but never really act on them. And this is because she...

    My Family Is Antigay.

    When I first came out to my parents in eighth grade, they criticized me and made me feel awful about it. I have yet to find a guy who sympathizes or cares about it.

    Not Me

    My ex boyfriend. I was talking to him on Facebook and how we should meet up, but he told me he couldn't because he told his parents he was gay. They freaked out and refuse to talk to him and his dad is telling everyone that he is his step son. Plus, they told his little brother...

    Acceptance Isn't Everything

    Acceptance. I used to crave it, I used to think it was the only thing that mattered. "Nothing matters as long as they accept me. Even if I have to sacrifice who I really am to be what they wan't me to be." So, up until a year ago I played football, I wore baggy jeans and...

    Freaking Dad!!!!

    My father and his parents are all homopobic. It ****** me off! But then it makes me kind of scared at the same time. Sure my dad is an ******* but that doesn't mean I don't want to see him or anything like that. One time on CHRISTMAS, he said out loud to at least 5 people, clear...

    Im Bi But Can't Tell My Parents.

    My mom and my dad told me when I was younger: "homos are piece of crap." That scared me, because I knew that I was bi.   and then I remember asking my mom: "What about bisexuals?" and my dad replied for her: "I swear on God, they are the worse. If I found out that one of my...

    Ignorance

    I told my mom I'm bisexual and she says she's okay with it but I don't really believe her. When I was dating my ex, Sarah, she refused to let us hang out anywhere besides the living room of my house and got mad whenever I was talking to her. When I started dating my ex, Dale...

    Must I Go On?

    I HATE MY FATHER!! He made me. Well, parts of me. But he can't accept gays. I'm bisexual and I'm afraid to tell him for fear of what he'll say. He'll kick me out. But maybe being kicked out wouldn't be such an awful thing...

    Homophobic Stepdad

    I'm straight but I'm completely against any homophobic prejudice. My stepdad is always making racist or homophobic comments which frustrate and anger me, he's forever making comments suggesting 'gay' people are sick and that it's unnatural. We're forever having debates, I'm proud...

    My cousin recently put on Facebook

    that she's getting married, since gay marriage is legal now. After that, my aunt posted on Facebook "everyone, please pray, there's a lot going on now." ONLY because she doesn't like gays, and she's in denial because her daughter is gay. My mom was talking to my dad about...

    Oh man. So I had a very stimulating

    conversation with my father about gay rights and turns out he's not as homophobic as I thought. So he picked me up from my job and while he was driving us home we heard on the news about this congressman who is openly gay. He told me details about it in a "can you believe this...

    Can I Trade?

    And I despise this fact. It’s not so much the entire family, though. The main problem I foresee is my father. He is probably the most old-fashioned, narrow-minded man I have ever had the misfortune to meet. My mother would be a different issue. I don’t think she’s...
