    Hi, hey, hello. i'm luna. I'm... queer? I still haven't put a label on it- god, I feel so pretentious saying that. I like girls more than guys. I was outed when I was fifteen, but I'm still not comfortable being out. I'm still in the 'closet' to new people and I'm okay with that.

    My community is a give or take. There are some people who are really not okay with it and vocal about it, there are some people who act okay with it to be "progressive" and are actually really offensive, but there are some people who genuinely don't care/accept you.

    I actually came out to someone a few weeks ago. Probably the first time I've ever done that on my own terms. It had my anxiety going through the roof but in the end he just brushed it off as if I was straight. It was nice.

    I'm Yuffie (not my real name), 15 and pretty sure I'm a lesbian. My parents know. My mum still wants me to marry a guy, and one night she even said she wanted a gay son not a gay daughter! That hurt me heaps and I still get upset over it. I can't help the fact I love girls! I've known since I stumbled across the topless pic of Hayley Williams in 2010/6th grade. I considered myself bi even when I got grossed out at the pic of Danny Worsnop's d*ck... I've never really wanted to date a guy anyway, marry a guy and definitely never wanted to have sex with a guy!
    So I'm pretty sure I'm a lesbian and proud of it!

    I'm Helena, 16 and I'm a lesbian, although I'm not a big fan of labels and never have been. I came out to my closest friends first a few months after I realised it myself early 2012, and the biggest step I took was telling my mother, which I did about a month and a half ago if I remember correctly. I had been so afraid she was going to give me such a negative response, be incredibly disappointed and that I'd possibly ruin our relationship. Instead she gave me the best response I could possibly ever ask for and it involved a lot of hugging and crying on my part, and she told me she only wants me to be happy. She doesn't quite understand being gay but she tries her best. It just sucks that she sometimes ""forgets"" and says I should never marry a man like blahblah or I should try and look for this trait in a man. My dad does it too, even though he's been much more outspokenly accepting when it comes to the subject of being gay. It kinda pisses me off when they know it was a big thing getting up the courage to tell them. but I guess they'll adjust. I know they're not gonna get used to idea that their daughter wants to marry a girl and not their ideal man in just a few months' time.
    In every community there are people who disapprove of being gay but I'm glad i live in a community that doesn't have much of that. I live in Iceland, there's a gay pride parade yearly (and next year i'm gonna be in that parade for the first time and I'm so excited), and there are support groups especially for LGBT teenagers.
    It's funny how my friend group is a bit of everything. My cousin/best friend is FtM and bisexual, my other best friend is gay, several of my friends are bisexual, and actually, less than 5 of my friends are straight. So when I came out, my friends were very accepting and nowadays they actually forget that I came out to them because they feel like it's been this way since ever, which is actually fantastic. I can talk to my straight friends about girls and my straight girl friends can talk to me about guys and we're all fine with it.

    It's been such a strange experience being completely out and not having to worry who i tell and being careful of the 'he/she/they' kinda thing. I think it's fantastic, it's one more worry that's out of my way and there's not more hiding anymore.

    Hey, I'm Sparrow, (Sadly, that is my real name.) and im gay. I came out when i was seven, according to my mom. She said i came home from school one day and told her i wanted one of my friends to be my girlfriend, so i could kiss her. So I guess its just a normal thing for me, i was lucky enough to have a mother who is the most understanding and loving person i know. And all my friends have known it from day one. So its never been a big thing in my life, its just me.
    :D

    Hey there. My name's Megan and I've self-identified as bisexual for years. I love it! I haven't come out to my family though, and I don't think I will. I just don't care about them for several reasons, and I'll probably be moving away with my boyfriend in a couple of years anyways so, eh.

    To be fair I think there are plenty of straight girls who were grossed out by it too. tehe

    @ Alex; periphery.
    It was filthy but I've seen plenty more, and I don't like the look of them... I never really liked the thought of being with a guy. I've kissed guys and I didn't like it.

    And Sparrow... You're so lucky. My mum doesn't understand... She believes it's a phase and I'm too young.

    I'm.... Bi.... ish....
    I'm romantically and sexually attracted to guys; but I'm only romantically attracted to girls. I could never have sexual relations with one. Um, only close friends know about it. No one in my family knows.
    They don't even know I have a girlfriend.

    I'm transgender. Uh, and...not sure about sexuality. I am into men, both romantically and sexually. But I like women to an extent? I wouldn't mind dating one romantically, but don't feel sexually for them? I don't get turned on by women, but if it ever came to it and I was with one, I would do that with them if they wished to. Not sure what that would be called.

    My being transgender is questioned a lot simply for the fact I like to wear dresses and like cute things. It pisses me off.

    @ the painter.
    Perhaps you're biromantic? Meaning you desire to be in a romantic relationship with people of two sexes/genders, but aren't necessarily sexually attracted to either.

    Ahh...that'd could be possible. Thank you. Cute I had totally forgotten about that term. I just wasn't also entirely sure because I would still have sexual intercourse with a female, and are attracted to their physical features, but not in that way from the beginning.

    you're heterosexual with homoromantic tendencies - if you'd never have sex with a female, you're not bi. it's pretty normal for girls to find other girls attractive.

    Hi guys... it's been a really long time hasn't it? I'm sorry. I really did miss you all, the new mibba just isn't working for me. Quick catch up: I'm doing well, my family is becoming more accepting, I've finally started dating again (nothing serious, just putting myself out there) and I've got some really close friendships going on.

    Either way I felt like coming on her because I watched an episode of Whitney tonight and our title character found out that her "sister" is actually FTM and is about to transition. Awesome, right? That a mainstream TV show is portraying trans people as normal and likeable instead of going crazy with the stereotypes and/or refusing to touch on the issue? I'm not sure how I felt about it though, because I thought the portrayal was kind of fucked up and inaccurate. Now I know I can't speak for every transman and that everyone's experience is different, but if you're at the point where you're going to take hormones in a few days and have been in gender therapy for a year you're not going to go by "Danielle," "she" and wear form fitting women's clothes and heels with no issue.

    @ die Bienen Knie
    It's good to hear from you again, and I'm glad you're doing well (:

    I've noticed that a lot of tv shows that have trans* characters seem a bit... off. I remember being really excited to hear that Degrassi (I was a fan in middle school...) was going to have FTM character, but it was honestly a complete let down.

    My dad was gay and I am bisexual.

    The thing is, I can't tell my mom because she has bitterness towards gays because of my dad leaving her after she had me. Plus she is one of those people who think that "Bisexual people are just easy."

    It makes me sick that I can't tell her, because I used to tell her everything. If my BOYFRIEND can accept it, why do I know she wouldn't?

    I'm an FtM trans kid. I go by Matt, and I'm also pansexual. I don't believe in traditional gender roles or being attracted to only one gender. I think that anyone can love anyone else but they tend to limit themselves. My community is very judgemental, but no one speaks out and openly against others, which is nice. I came out only a week ago to the entire student body and while I get some odd looks, I feel much better about myself and no one treats me differently.

    @ flyingf0xes
    I've never had sex with a girl, nor with a guy. But I know I've never really had sexual feelings and almost no emotional attraction for guys, where I like girls emotionally, physically and sexually. So simply saying 'If you haven't had sex with a girl, you're not bi (or lesbian)' since people can be attracted to the same sex, without any intercourse.

    Just... putting it out there... -hides in corner-
