A lot of people still today don’t know about my sexual orientation. I don’t like to broadcast it either. I believe that it is my personal life and if I wanted to broadcast it I would in a dramatic way. But I haven’t done that and have no intentions on doing that. The one reason that I am doing this like this, is because I feel like I need to let people know. I’m not the one that’s going to be all flamboyant about it either. I’m not the one to be all flamboyant. I am more on the straight acting side all though I do have some feminine qualities, such as my clothing, must match and be in style. A lot of people call it a “Life-Choice” or “Lifestyle”. That is one thing that gets under my skin. It isn’t a lifestyle or life-choice. Being gay isn’t a choice. It is just who you are and you shouldn’t be afraid to show who you truly are. Yes, being gay, is still hard for some people, due to the criticism and bullying. I have had my share of bullying and criticism in my life and still have it at times. I feel that if they want to criticize and/or bully you, you don’t need them in your life. I knew I was gay when I was about 8 or 9 years old when I had my first experience with a boy. It was with my best friend at the time and we stayed friends and in my opinion are still friends. We don’t talk to each other though as he has moved and moved a distance away and we don’t have each other’s numbers either. He does come to town every once in a while and we do hang out and chat and catch up on what’s going on. When growing up, you didn’t hear the word “gay” unless someone was being derogatory towards someone from using that word. Now, today you hear it all the time and most of the time it is in good terms instead of derogatory.
I have posted another article on my family website, with more details titled “Coming Out”. You can check that article out here.
