What's the best thing about being gay? Share the good, the bad, and the best... Tell Your Tale

I love being gay!

I LOVE being gay. Yes it did take me years of painful struggle to finally accept all of who I am, but now that I've done that, I feel immensely proud of my identity, I am made stronger by the confidence that I have in knowing myself and loving myself wholly. I'm 19 and have started telling my family and friends that I am gay, a lot of whom can be quite conservative, but I feel that being who I am gives me the chance to bring my loved ones closer to understanding homosexuality in general and thus, broadens their acceptance. So I feel that being gay, I can use my identity to bring about understanding among those I love, which will hopefully have a positive impact on someone else in some way.

I Love Being Gay

I Love Being Gay Because , It Shows Me Who I Am, Im Not Like Other Gay Guys I Have Fun, I Joke, Play I Enjoy Life .. And I Just Do Me Being Gay Is The One Thing That Makes Me Happy In Life In All Honesty , Without This Personality I Dont Know I Could Make It !

Sad but equally Happy

It's sad because people will normally think of you as a bad person. Or they'll say you may be nice but you'd sure be going to hell. I feel sad about that because I may be gay but like them, they have sinned enough to go to hell too but being gay is more of an eye catcher to Christians. You are more prone to being told to going to hell... Plus you fall inlove with the wrong person. :(

I do enjoy, at times, being gay because of the fact that you don't have to worry about the risk of pregnancy. However, it really hurts to know that you can't have the type of options a straight person would normally have in the dating world, which makes you feel as though you'll never find someone to love or be happy with. It causes me to feel like an unwritten fairytale, always true but never loved.

It hurts

I sometimes hate being gay, why? because sometimes, for the the most part you end up fallin inlove with your best friend, (who for the the most part will be STARIGHT!) and there is nothing you an do that will evr change his mind unles he falls in love with you, which is rare! hmmmm, this is what has been happening to me.

being gay is hard

i am 13 and im gay the good thing is you have alot more choices the bad thing is i fell in love with a popular girl and she has a boyfriend.
—Guest hunter girl

I love it

well, at first, I always sorta hated it. I always wanted to be straight. As time went on, it kinda got worse. Then I made this friend who was also gay and he taught me that there was nothing wrong with it. He is the only one I've come out to. He became my closest friend and now I love my life. The only problem I'm having with it right now is that.. I think I might be falling in love with him.. But I really don't want to ruin the perfect friendship that we have. So I'm constantly fighting with that problem.. It has it's ups and downs.

Free from the shackles that bind. So much intimacy. No questioning. Bodies just pleasing each other.


It's not a walk in the park being gay but it's normal for me. It's not much different from being straight (I think?). I get butterflies when I talk to people I like, I am thrown into a loop when I try to make them happy, I love my gf with all my heart and I'm not all about the sex. That's what a relationship is. So what if I like women? Why the h*** should that define me? I feel no need to shout it out to the world, but I won't hide behind a closet door. I'm me, not a gay character. So yes, you can suck my imaginary you-know-what.
