Although everyone knows me as a straight, I'm a gay

I'm 19, and I seem like a normal man. But I started to notice I'm a gay for about 8 years ago. My friends, my parents, everyone know me as a normal man. I've been hiding that as a secret for years, and I'm tired now. I want to say this to someone because I can't live with this secret anymore. I'm in pain, and I'm suffering. But I scare from people's reactions, maybe my friends may leave me. People I love can negatively change their opinions about me. By the way, I'm not living in Europe, so in my country being a gay isn't nice. That is, I don't know what I should do.

  • Our views on what "Normal" is, differs from each others. F*** the labels and what others think. If you reside in a state/Country where being gay is taboo and a criminal offence - If you have the resources to do so, relocate somewhere where you won't be persecuted for being gay. If you have a family that's homophobic, don't disclose anything to them. Your sexuality is your personal business, no one else's. However, if you want to meet and discuss these matters with likeminded people - the internet is a haven and beacon of light for that :)

    I don't know your personal situation and what being gay in your world entails. But in my world, a person's sexuality doesn't matter. Loving and caring, being supportive is what matters to me. I'm safe to live and love whomever I want, regardless of whatever gender my partner is. If those closest to you truly love you, then they'd understand. Family in theory should love you unconditionally. However, I'm aware its not always the case for some people.

  • I'm 15 and I've come to the realization that I'm gay and not just a cute curious kid experimenting. I'm gonna keep it a secret though.

  • Be smart about this ... if there is obvious discrimination against the Gay community, and you don’t hv “rights” as a gay man, you must hang in there until you can quietly leave your country or city. do not disclose your sexual orientation until you can fully trust a person. take good care. and be safe.

  • Agreed :)

  • At least you as agree that you're not normal. Gays ( or queers to use a better term ) are strange people.
    Keep your secret to yourself.
    Most normal people ( like me ) hate queers.

  • You’re not “normal” m*********** ... probably love f****** your boyfriend too. closeted f***.

  • Are you retarded?
