My name is Ben, and I'm gay.
I have told a few of my friends, so I am by no means open yet. I'm not afraid of how my peers at school would react, but I'm afraid of my parents reaction.
Both of my parents have expressed to me how much they hate the idea of gay marriage, and that being gay is a sin. I don't know what to believe. The bible says that it is an abomination, but I don't want it to be. Anyway, i have no idea if i should tell my parents; it would change everything between us.
There's this one guy i like and I'm almost 100% sure that he's gay/bi, but i still don't know how to tell him. I mean even if he is gay, i doubt that he would like me. i loooooooove spending time with him; he always makes me smile. I have never had my first kiss. I feel so alone...
