Day 3 - How old were you when you knew? What was that like for you?
I don’t remember how old I was exactly… but I always knew there was something odd about me but I remember my denial stage very vividly.
In my early teens, I remember getting into lots of fist fights in High School and one or twice getting suspended from school. In the end, the bullying was so unbearable I actually quit school.
I did not want to be gay or straight or be perceived in any sexual orientation for that matter… nor did I understand why it was such a huge deal or why I had to be picked on.
It was tough, but once I got comfortable in my own skin, everything was okay.
