1. How long have you known you are part of the LGBT community?
For about 6 years.
2. Was it a struggle (emotionally) for you at the beginning?
I was extremely confused at first. I was having my feelings played with when it all started, and it was the first time I had ever experienced something like that. I was afraid. Before then, I never honestly could have said I was interested in another female.
3.How did you start to discover your sexuality? (Example, thoughts, feelings…ex)
That experience, to begin with...and then over time, I began to figure out my preferences little by little. I'm still a virgin, so it was a little hard to do so. It took me a good whole 5 years to figure myself out.
4. What part of the LGBT community do you belong to? (Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, ex)
5. How long have you been out of the closet, or if your not, do you plan to be at some point?
I'm half in and half out. I tell those who I know really well and can trust, but aside from that, I just let them figure it out.
6. Does your parents/parent know, or will they ever know?
Yes, but it was not my choosing to do so.
7. Did they take it well, or do you predict that they will take it well?
They took it better than I expected, but they also say I can't be bisexual if I've never had sex and try to hook me up with a bunch of guys who aren't my type. :\
8. Would you…
a. Hold hands with a same gender partner in public?
Yes. Of course.
b. Kiss them in public?
If she'd let me? Hell yes.
c. Introduce them as 'your girl/boyfriend' to family and friends that haven't met them?
Once again, if she let me, hell yes!
9. What 3 things ANGERS THE HELL outta you about people's terrible 'opinions' about the LGBT community or certain comments, acts, ex…
1) "Bisexuality doesn't exist! You gotta pick one!" with the additional "So first, you're gonna sleep with a man because being with a man is so much better."
2) All the 'die cis scum' bullshit. I know there are cisgender individuals who can be assholes, but I'M CIS, AND I WANT TO HELP US ALL GAIN ACCEPTANCE IN THE LGBT COMMUNITY. Why does everyone have to fight over this crap?!
3) All the stereotypes. There is a beautiful mixture of us in the LGBT community, and none of the stereotypes about us are always true. We're all different individuals. That's a promise.
10. Do you like/love someone right now of the same gender?
11. If so, do they know?
I could only hope she does.
12. Have you told someone about your sexuality and they took it badly?
Surprisingly, no. However, do not forget that I have yet to tell a vast majority of my family. Aside from that, I've gained mostly acceptance for my sexuality (aside from the parents situation).
13. Are you proud of whom you are?
It's taken me this long to be HALFWAY comfortable in my own skin. I would hope to be.
