Amy 1

Hi my names Amy and I'm bisexual. I am currently in a relationship with a boy but I'm more attractive to girls (I always have been). There's this girl and she's everything but I'm scared because she's lesbian and fully out to the world and well I'm not, I'm scared of telling my parents and siblings, I'm scared of school if anyone found out there it would spread like wild fire and I'm scared of being out in the world. I don't think my parents would take kindly to me if I came out bisexual.

i am 21 years old and a graduating college student...i meet a friend, he become my best friend. i felt something peculiar the way we treat each other and i just felt-off that i'm in love with him and at the same time i discovered that i'm a gay. at first i can't accept it because they say being gay is sin and i don't want to go hell. i did confess everything to him and he replied "yuck' hehehehe.. i guess he is hiding something. ...but i understand him that way because both of our parents are strict. and here in our country gays are not totally accepted.

My first open gay crush was a guy named L, at the RV/Beach Resort my family visits during most summers. I came out to my friends and selective family members at 14, and they were all very supportive. Point of the story: If you're afraid to come out, just tell your closest people. You're gonna have haters, but who the Hell doesn't?

Andrew 1

My name is Andrew, im 17 and i'm gay. For about 2 years I kept telling myself that it was just a phase and I tried to make myself attracted to girls which didn't work. I've been out for a few months now and I had my very first boyfriend. It ended after a few weeks- but on good terms. My life has completly changed for the better now that people know. Now I am truly happy in life and i'm so excited because my life is finally moving forward. I would advise everyone who is gay, lesbian, bi etc to come out because once you do, you will feel so much happier in life.
