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.

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 a 15 year old lesbian who has been hiding her sexuality because i am afraid of what people may say. do not be afraid to admit your true feelings for people as they may turn out okay.
I am 23 [...] and a lesbian, ....i told my parents. they were a little shocked but accepted me and loved me. then together we told our closest friends and they were nothing but supportive. Advice for others, the sooner you come clean the sooner you will get the chance to love and be happy.
when i was in year 8 i fancied someone in my year [...] someone in my class said to me that he is gay, and then we were seeing each other. Then everyone in my year was calling me gay and i was getting abused. It was in the half team that i said i was gay, when we got back to school i have a lot of name call, but by the end of the week everyone accepted me for who i am. Still now i am getting name calling at me, but i just didn't say nothing back to him because that is who I am so just accepted it.
Im 14. I've known I was a lesbian since I was 11. I really wanna come out to my family. Ive come out to my friends and they're cool with it. They actually said they were happy that we weren't lying to each other anymore. Even the lady I babysit for for free tutoring knows and she still let's me around her daughter. I thought it would be really hard to tell my friends but they were like, "so. That doesn't change you." and we just went on being friends Like always.
My name is Josh and im 16. Ive known i was gay since the beginning of my life(where my memories started). Im living in the closet and it does suck but i am fortunate that they're brave people who are out and fighting for our rights. Hopefully one day i can join them and protest with them. My family are homophobic, but i still love them , they are just not exposed and educated on this stuff. My name is joshua and one day i will come out and i am , will be a proud gay human being!
I'm an ordinary South African girl. I've recently admitted to myself that I'm a lesbian but it wasn't easy doing so. I've come out to my friends and my cousins but not to my mom yet. I suspect that she knows but I don't want to confirm it for her as yet: the last thing I want to hear is someone telling me it's just a phase. It helps that I've got a few friends who are also lesbian/ bisexual. I've also learnt that love just happens and you start to have a great ife once you begin to remain true to yourself.
I'm 16 years old and i think i am a lesbian. I've had boyfriends in the past but i've never been with a girl. The thing is that i think I'm in denial. I've kept trying to tell myself that I am not a lesbian. The last time i came out to my parents about something (It was the fact that i wasn't a Christian like them) they laughed and said i was too young to even by thinking about a choice like that. They still tell people I am a Christian. I guess that experience makes me think that they wouldn't support me. I don't know.
My name is Kirsten. I am 18 years old. My first crush was in Kindergarten on a girl.... My mother is extremely Catholic and is outspokenly against homosexuality. The area in which I live is very Christian. People are very openly against homosexuality and I fear how I would be treated if people knew. I am in the top of my graduating class. Straight A's. Going into either Geo or Astrophysics and Anthropology. I do not see a way to live both lives openly, and so, at least for now, i will remain silent.
