I am twenty years old, studying at a decent college, and yet I'm still living a lie. Sometimes I would even look for gay sexual acts on the internet, just to prove to myself I didn't like it. I'm writing to plead you to not hide yourself, to not build up these walls. No harm can come to your loved ones from your homosexuality, and there is nothing to fear or hate about yourself.

It all started when I was 13 years old... I started to think I'm gay, I had no reason at all to think this. I went to talk to my guidance counsellor at my school and she really helped me. Even though she told me I should give myself some time to see where things would go and that there is nothing wrong with being gay I still kept saying to myself that I didn't want to be gay.

I am a 19 year old college student... I've had 3 sexual partners in my life, 2 being guys and 1 being a girl. ... I plan on keeping my masculinity strong because I like it and I want people to know that gay/bisexual people are not what society sees them as. We are people that are just the same as a heterosexual person that want equality and not to throw it in their faces or anything but I do believe that homosexuality has been out as long as heterosexuality has!
