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 bi and like three people. One of them happens to be a friend. I know she's not a lez or bi. I want to tell her but not sure how to. One of the other ones knows and doesn't care. He accepts it. The other one doesn't know. I'm not sure that he will...helpless, 14, naNY
I need help. I can't keep going on like I am. The pain is becoming too much. People are starting to question me and lying is no longer an option.
So I guess my question is: What can I do to make it better? How do I make the pain go away?Forevralone, 17, naOH
I have a question that is probably different from any that you have ever got. I am not a homosexual, but I have many friends that are and I need some help. One of my best friends, who was 7 years older than me and was gay, recently committed suicide. We...Emy D, 14, naKS
In the last 24 hours, I feel as if I have lost everything I love. I have always lived a quite life but last night my parents discovered my homosexuality, kicked me out my home and did not even give me the chance to get a few things that would remind me of...Chris, 20, Rapid citySD

I've been interested in guys for the past couple of years, and I'm trying to turn back straight again. It's very hard, every time I try not to visit an X-rated sited I just go back and do it. I can't stop it. Please help me.Chris, 19, Not in USIN
I've been bi since the 8th grade but I can't find the courage to come out. I hate the fact that I have no one to talk to about how I feel. I want more than anything to tell my best friend that I am in love with her, but she’s on the verge of...Serena, 16, MPKCA
I am a 23 year old female dealing with my sexuality. I want to be very blunt because I feel this is the only place I can be honest with someone else and with myself. I am very attractive and no one would ever think I was gay. I remember fantasizing about...Lauren, 23, AnonymousOK
I am gay and out ot my school (or at least to those who know me, its not like I wear a sign saying i'm gay). I have had several crushes on guys at my school but mostly they turn out to be straight and I am left heartbroken. I feel so lonely. The only...GS, 17, PittsfordNY
I'm feeling lost and ashamed of who I am. I have known I am gay for a while now and have been trying to accept it. I feel like I am being ripped in two. On one hand I can not continue to lie to myself about how I feel about men. On the other hand I can...Jack, 21, SeattleWA
