Tag: Gay


When I was 10 I knew I was different, but I didn’t know what that meant. Some of the neighborhood boys would call me a faggot, but I didn’t even understand words like gay, straight, bisexual, transgender, or queer. I didn’t even know they existed. My Aunt Nora is an amazing woman and when she… Read more »

From Idaho to Massachusetts

I have always known I am attracted to the same gender. I fooled around with boys in Idaho, but we did not call it anything. I went into the Navy in 1959, boot camp at San Diego, transfer at T.I. in San Franscisco, destroyer at Long Beach, transfer to U.S. Navy School of Music in… Read more »

Coming Out: I Am a Man

Dear you, I’ve always been scared of the word “man”; today I take that word and own it! I guess I should start with the fact that I’m an anomaly and have never really fit into any one category or group. It’s something that I’ve learned to enjoy, as I’m able to comfortably fuse into… Read more »

Blurred Lines

For me, coming out was the easiest thing I never had to do. From a very early age, I always had an affinity towards the same sex. I was too young for it to be called an attraction; I just knew intrinsically that when it came time to play ‘house,’ it felt natural not only… Read more »

Yours Truly

Many people know from a young age whether or not they like boys or girls. For me, I knew I liked boys when I was about 8/9 years old and I would fantasize about kissing boys and being in relationships with one. I went to a Catholic elementary/middle/junior high for 9 years and always was taught… Read more »

Timing is Everything

I have been planning to put this as a status on my fb. I am completely sober. I should have spilled the beans while I am having the time of my life. I fell in love with one person, got scared of being judged, and now I am losing him. Yes, fell in love with… Read more »

The Struggle of Being Gay

By the time I was in the 6th grade I knew I was gay, but had never told anyone and never wanted to tell anyone because I was completely terrified of what people would think. I had lived my life all through middle school in the closet and had made some amazing friends including a… Read more »

Stop Pretending

Since approximately middle school, I’ve more or less known that I like guys. Although I classify as biromantic, my self-esteem has reached a point where if really anyone told me they liked me, I would find myself reciprocating these feelings. Although I figured my parents and friends would be ok with it, I stayed in… Read more »
