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...
Hello. I'm 16 years old and a bisexual female. I've been “out of the closet” since 8th grade now (it was too stuffy and cramped in that closet!) I used to be depressed. Of course, no one really knew because I’m an expert at hiding emotions in public. (Yes...Sassy, 16, WA
I am suffering in a totally different problem. I am a grade 10 student and I have been here for almost 6 years and I still can't adapt myself to this environment. The situation here isn't the best for teenagers. At school all the good friends I had are...Kashfi, 15, Dhaka
I recently came out to my friends and to my parents. But this isn’t about me at all. I have a friend who is gay and has many emotional issues. Every time he gets into a fight with his boyfriend (now ex) he gets very depressed. He has said many times that...Guy, 18, HamburgPA
Um, hi there! I'm gay and told my best friend a couple of years ago when in high school. She was totally cool with it. When high school finished and we were out celebrating, we ended up making out. It was the first time I had ever been with a girl and...Louise, 19, NY
How does a person know for sure if they are gay or bi? I have been toying with the idea that I could be one way or the other for some time now, but I feel like it could just be hormones or something. I really like one of my best friends, but I’m not sure...CTN, 13, MA
I am a senior in high school and have known that I am a lesbian, or at least not straight, since late my freshman year. I have been with my girlfriend (I’ll call her “M”) since about halfway through my sophomore year—two years this coming Valentine's Day...Anita, 17, Trabuco CanyonCA
Things just never seem to go my way. Almost 3 years ago I fell in love and got my heart broken and I haven't fully gotten over it. I still sleep with the guy that broke my heart even though he just uses me for sex and treats me like crap. After he broke...Dizzy, 19, NYCNY
I came across your site a few months ago and I think it is a wonderful thing! I would also like some advice though. I get rather depressed from loneliness sometimes. I feel like guys just don't like me and I don't really know how to go about finding any...Zack, 16, StillwaterOK
So this is BAD! I have a crush on my best friend and I don’t know how or where this could go. He has told me that he likes boys and we are open with each other on that subject. The problem is that he is 4 years younger than me. Now, I would just like to...Me, 18, TornIN
