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. After a few months, I came out to one of my sisters and also my mother. I have two other sisters but I never did come out to them (I don't really know why). However, I haven't told my brother yet. We don't get along that well and I just don't feel the time is right.


My name's Dakotah, and I'm bisexual. I'm currently 14 years old, and I have a boyfriend. I have been with girls before, two last year, who were both my best friends at one point. A teacher informed my mom and one night she asked me about it. I told her I was bi, and she flipped out. She kept telling me, "You're 13! You don't know what you are! You're just going through a stupid phase." But I knew I wasn't. Who is she to tell me who I am?

Im 14. Ive known for a while im bisexual. Ive dated boys in the past and sometimes it feels right but sometimes it doesnt. I told one of my best friends but shes a loud mouth and loves to gossip, i thought id regret telling her cause i thought she'd tell the school and im not ready to come out to everyone yet, but she hasnt told anyone, Then i told my bestest friend and she understood and shes supportive and listens and helps if im down with anything.


Im Ashlyn and I'm 16 and im a lesbain. When I was 14 i started realizing that i liked girls, I tried to talk myself out of it for the past two years. I thought if i dated enough guys or found a guy good enough it would change who i am because my family is very religious and I am scared they will shut me out if they knew. I dont know how to tell my family and i dont want to get kicked out of my house and I want to tell some of my friends but I still have two years of high school and I dont know if i can go from social butterfly to "that lesbain girl".


I'm 14, and well, Bi-sexual/Lesbian. I haven't really told anyone cause it's frowned upon where I live. I don't plan on coming out too my Guardians since I was told to 'not come to them with that news.' By them.

Am a white girl who live in ghana. Am a lesbian and am in with a black girl does not know,I love her. But i feel she love to but she is afraid to say because lesbianism is not allow in ghana.


I am a 15 year old bisexual, and my entire life I thought I was completely straight. ...there was a new girl who transferred into my school 2 years ago and as we became good friends, I found that I had a crush on her. I got over my shyness and told her the truth and we started dating shortly after that. We keep it a secret from our parents who are extremely homophobic but after telling one friend and gaining a favorable reaction, we told the rest of our friends and they were more than happy to support us.

I'm Kayla and I'm 15 years old, nearly 16 :) I was 13 when I realised that I liked girls as well as boys. I haven't yet had a girlfriend, but I had a boyfriend last year. Now that I think about it, I didn't actually like him much. I broke up with him after 3 months because I didn't feel the same way and it would've been horrible of me to lead him on.

I am 15 years old, i just had my first girlfriend. I don't know who to talk to about it because I'm scared of what can happen if people knew how I felt and use it against me. My mother says that i don't know what I want, she doesn't accept that her own brother is gay. I don't know what to do, I just want to give up on trying to be with someone because I'm so clueless. I am sure about one thing though, I've liked girls since I was about 10 years old.

I am a 12 year homosexual living in Canada. My dad I am pretty sure would rather die then know that his son was gay (Also one of my older sister's is gay), which really makes me feel happy and she hasn't told our dad either.
