    Why I Don't Trust My Family Any More

    All my life I knew that I was bi. When I was little I had crushes on both boys and girls, and during sleep overs I realized that they only talked about boys. I decided that it must be wrong of me to like both boys and girls so I never told any one until I was 14 it was summer and...

    My Coming Out Story

    So by the time I came out, I was 19, and I had known I was gay since I was about 13. Soon after that I had learned that being gay was a big no-no, and that I should probably try to be straight. So I did that for a few years, and only succeeded in making myself basically asexual...

    I knew I like the ladies at an early age.

    I hid it for 32 years. Through my catholic grade school years, public high school, and even through my college years. I wasn't questioned about it until my college years. I ended up dating men on and off then. Being gay wasn't as accepting as it is now. So, I hid it. I wound...
