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.

Jasmine 1

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.

Kaylie

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.

Ryan 1

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.

Katie 1

I lost my virginity to my best friend. I was 17 and so was he. We didn't plan to have sex the night that we did but he took me out to dinner and we came back to my house and just happened to be home alone and I knew that that was how is was supposed to happen. I never regretted the way that I lost my virginity and I know that I lost it to the right person.

Jess 1

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.

Joshua

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 am a 20 year old female. I found out I had HIV when I was 15. I have had a wonderful life and am going to continue living a beautiful happy life. I have had one baby boy by the grace of god, he is healthy and HIV-. You can still live a long healthy life as long as you stay healthy. Exercise eat healthy, and make good decisions about your body.

K.K.

I'm 21 yrs old and I'm HIV+ I was told this awful news on feb 4, 2011. When I was 5 mths pregnant with my first child. it's not fair that this has happen to me. I was under so much stress that I had my bby 3 mths early and he was born a 2 lb premie THANK GOD! he is negative and now weighs 16lbs:). My family loves me but they are in denial. They don't acknowledge what I have. They just pretend its not true and it hurts because I have to basically go though this alone and raise my infant son.
