Even though my family knows I am bi, they still don't get that it is painful to hear them describe unwanted things as "gay", or calling people that they don't like as "fags".

It is incredibly hurtful when our loved ones don't support us. Their non-support can come in many different forms. It can be outright rejection, refusing to acknowledge who you are as an individual, or using a part of who you are to refer to others in a negative light. It's hard to imagine the pain you must...
I'm 19, and came out almost a year ago. I'm a very shy person, not very outwardly and don't fit in with the very gay, fashion-conscious, socially active gay boys I meet. Savannah has no place for gay youth to meet. I'm beginning to hate being gay,...Nathan, 19, SavannahGA
I never doubted that I was straight until this year. I became sexually active a few months ago, but I never get very aroused with a guy. When I masturbate, I don't think about guys--I think about girls. Once I kissed another girl and it felt incredible....Holly, 15, WA
I can't say I have one question. It seems everything is falling down on me now. I've known I was gay for almost 2 years I think. I had a best mate who I cared the world for. He passed this year. We've moved to the states and I am placed into a foreign...Matt, 15, MS
Hi, I have a huge problem. I've had this crush on a girl in my class since the beginning of eighth grade and now I'm a freshman in high school. Over the summer I told my family that I'm a lesbian. I thought they would understand, but none of them did. My...Trapped, 15, LexingtonSC
My problem is that I am infatuated with a girl at my work, "Cate," who is in the closet. She can't be with me, but every day I become more obsessed with her.
I can't stop thinking about Cate, and I get angry and anxious if I am not near her. All day long...Sad Girl, 21, CA
I am a resident assistant on my campus and I am a lesbian. I have a girlfriend and we walk around campus holding hands. Keep in mind our campus is very close minded and we are always being stared at. Most the time I don't care and find it...Susan, 20, WI
I'm a bi boy and in the closet. I recently told my best friend, Y, about it since I knew she'd accept me, and she did. She also promised to keep it a secret when I asked her to. Later she introduced me to a guy friend of hers, A, who I really liked. I...Perplexed, 17, MI
I always suspected that I was gay since the age of 10. Now I am 16 and in a relationship. My parents just think we are very good friends. I want to come out to them, but I just don't know how. If you have any suggestions, could you please tell me, and...Crystal, 18, CarriereMS
I think I might be bi but I'm not sure.
One night me and my friends got really drunk. Then my friend Clair and me started to make out. She told me the next day that she thought that she might be bi, that she thought this long...Madison, 16, UnknownNY
