hey,am leah.. am a lesbian.last week i slept with a HIV + lady. i didnt know of her status at the time of intimacy. i found our 12hrs laters of her status..n immediately went on PEP arv treatment.i just pray to God that the treatment works n i turn  negative.pple lets be careful n avoid casual  sex


This year and the last few years, I have been through a lot of shit that has to do with my sexuality. I've always loved girls because they are so amazing, both sexually and emotionally.


I'm sixteen, and I've been living the life my dad wants me to live, all along. Just to make him happy. But, I wasn't happy. I'm gay, and I couldn't be myself because I thought it would disappoint my father.
I've grown up around gay and bisexual people. My mom is bisexual, and I was always around her and her girlfriends and gay friends. My aunt is gay, and I was always around her and her ex-wife, and all of her girlfriends.

Aurora 1

Ever since 4th grade I have had lesbian thoughts and feelings because all of my male role-models in my life have been abusive to my mom and I. I'm almost 14 now and I have had a major crush on my BFF. Now all I need to do is sum up some bravery and wait for the right moment to tell her... I was really reluctant to tel my story at first, but then I read the other stories and I could tell it helped them. I am really thankful that I found Avert...

i think about men, and I don't find women all that attractive at all. I began hating myself, thinking I was wrong, that I was dirty in some way. After a while I realised, I'm gay aren't I, I'm going to have to accept it or I will hate myself forever. and although it was difficult i resolved my complex feelings about being gay.

Jack 1

I'm 21 year old. that was the year i realize i am a gay. But i never told anybody because in our location, most people are christian and i used to be a good christian. I often wonder if Jesus forgive me or i am really guilty.


i am a 25 year old gay man living in South Africa. I will not come out 2 anyone. I have been called gay, fag, stabane, sophy, caroline, the list is endless, 4 as long as i can remember.

April 1

I'm 14 years old and I have feelings for such an amazing girl. She isn't lesbian/bisexual. I'm finding it very hard to deal with. I just need someone in my situation where the feel that their feelings are so strong for a girl they would do anything. I need someone to talk too who's in my shoes.

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.


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?
