I have decided to tell you the truth about who I am and what my sexuality is. It may come as a shock to you, however, I don’t just only like girls, but I like guys. I, however, view girls as friendship material. Additionally, I can appreciate women and see beauty in them. However, I don't feel any attraction towards women. Therefore, I am gay. I am however proud to be who I am as well as who I love and no one can tell me any different!
To my knowledge I have always fallen under the Gay stereotype, however, I have told myself from about five to the age of sixteen that I only like girls and that I was straight. When in fact I have liked guys the whole time and that I was gay.
Funny story, the first time that I question my sexuality was the first time for something else as well. Around the end of June in 2010, I was having troubles with getting to sleep. Therefore, around 1:30am, I decided to turn on my TV and watch some TV, I decided on Family Channel. I saw that Family Channel was playing a new music video. I was doing other things at the time so I just listened to the song. As I was listening to the song I thought to myself, this girl can sing. However when I looked up to the TV, I noticed that the artist wasn't a girl but was a guy. This music video was “One Time” by Justin Bieber.
I started to question my sexuality and thought I actually, am not sure if I'm just straight a few seconds after the music video for One Time was finished. From this point until February 23rd, 2013, I spent time thinking about it and put all the pieces to the puzzle together and finally realized, that I'm gay.
A big part of my coming out experience and figuring out how I am was done on the Internet. From watching YouTube videos about being gay and the ways they came to term of their sexuality, to reading online posts and I even did a few, Are you gay surveys.
Everyone, whom I have came out to so far, has taken it the news great and they still have remained to treat me, and love me the same way that they have always had. I feel so much better now that I have came out to most people.
I currently have a Boyfriend and I couldn't be any happier!
