About This Club

For members and allies of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community.
  1. What's new in this club
  2. Unfortunately Amsterdam Pride 2020 is added to the long list of cancelled events due to the coronavirus. Let's hope things can get to normal in 2021!
  3. Happy Pride Month! I always like to remind people of the United States that, while celebrating the LGBT communities' progress, we really owe a lot to those who fought in the Stonewall Uprising. The Stonewall Inn was considered a safe place for LGBT since the family who owned the Inn had bribed New York's precinct to leave the Inn alone. The family would usually receive word from corrupt police on incoming raids to the Inn, giving bartenders enough time to hide alcohol (illegally sold without a liquor license, since liquor licenses were not given to those who sold to LGBT patrons).
  4. How did you discover your homosexuality? At what age did you do it? Since I have memory I have always felt different or special, at school when I was only 6 years old I had a best friend and played sitting on his legs; One day, at age 7, while my aunt was dressed, I asked her why she put on makeup and she replied that I was a man, so I replied that I wanted to do it; Also between that age, I remember seeing the Mister Universe with my parents and said that I should win a boy because I thought it was very beautiful. Then you could say that at 6 years old. ¿Cómo reaccionaste al hecho
  5. I'm kind of like one year late but, whatever. Here is my "gay history": How did you discover your homosexuality? At what age did you do it? I've always had feelings that I was gay or bisexual when I was like 7. When I was 5, I had a crush on one of my best friends that was the same gender as I am. I didn't know what being gay or bisexual was at the age of 5, obviously. I ignored it for a few years and I think I knew I could be possibly gay or bisexual when I was 7. In 6th grade (when I was 11), I grew another crush on a different best friend. I always felt like I needed to pro
  6. I came out the day after National Coming Out Day! I was feeling the pressure.
  7. I know this is two days late but, Happy National Coming Out Day to all my xat.com gays To those of you not out, consider this day as a show of how freeing it feels to be out. It gets better and the journey is worth the destination (but don't rush it)! To those of you who are out, celebrate and show how proud you are to be queer.
  8. How did you discover your homosexuality? At what age did you do it? I'm not a lesbian, just bisexual I guess. Discovered that at my early 12 years when I lost my female best friend, I realised I didnt had only feelings as a friend, I wanted many stuff. How did you react to the fact that you are gay, by then? Neutral. It's not something that you can control or decide if you want to be so or no, it just happens and when you want to think about it, even if you try avoiding that thought, you just can't. How long did it take you to face the truth and accept
  9. How did you discover your homosexuality? At what age did you do it? I discovered myself as bisexual when I was 12 years old, the reason why I can't tell you, because it's a little bit "aggressive". How did you react to the fact that you are gay, by then? My reaction was normal, because at that age, I knew what I was, but I couldn't understand it. How long did it take you to face the truth and accept yourself? When I turned 15, I already knew that I was bisexual. With that age I understood everything, and then I accepted myself as I am. Do your siblings and/or pare
  10. I'm somewhere on the gay spectrum, and it's quite clear I've been that way since I was around 13 or so. But let me tell you, like Brandon and a few others mentioned, the cognitive dissonance thing is real. When I was growing up, gay issues did not have mainstream support at all in the media -- at least in my country (US) and state. I also went to a small/weird school, and I don't think I actually knew an openly gay person in real life until I was around 16. So when you grow up with certain expectations about how attraction should work, and then suddenly you experience feelings which contradict
  11. It's beautiful to see all your histories, it was very exciting. I have a lot of friends of the LGBT community, i'm always going to discos with them(i love LGBT discos - last weekend was the last time ) I'm always supporting them and fighting with people who have derogatory comments against LGBT people(included some members of my family). All my love is with the LGBT community! ♥
  12. I just want to take a second and say I love you guys I'm not gay but it's honestly moving reading your guys' story I thought Daniel really was dating Rida oops
  13. @Junior are you going to share? I am in a relationship with someone who is very much in the closet. It's tough. It's exactly as you described it for him. He knows nothing will change but whenever he even thinks about saying the words, he gets very anxious. I hope one day society doesn't make people have to go through this horrific and liberating experience and being queer is normal. However, I doubt that will be anytime soon. Until then, these success stories are important. They show people that life is either the same or better for most once they come out of the closet. It he
  14. i'd say Channing Tatum Ryan Reynolds (dead pool) Zac Efron Ian Somerhalder (Demon Salvatore) Dwayne Johnson (The Rock)
  15. For as far as I can remember, I was just attracted to other guys. I don't know, guys always caught my eyes and girls didn't. I never really thought anything of it until around the start of high school when you start to learn more about yourself all that fun stuff and I realised that I was attracted to guys, and there was a name for it. I don't really distinctively going through a "facing the truth" phase, and I think it was easy for me to accept that I was different from the majority of people, however, I knew that gay was bad. Kids my age always used "gay" to describe things they
  16. I think about that all the time, and I have no clue how it's going to happen. I'm so excited though! I'll post a follow-up story for sure.
  17. How did you discover your homosexuality? At what age did you do it? - I discovered it after getting feelings for guys during 6th grade PE. I did not know what it meant at the time. I was 12. How did you react to the fact that you are gay, by then? I realized it a year or so after the first incident but refused to admit it. I said that I just had been around guys more than girls so it was reasonable. How long did it take you to face the truth and accept yourself? I think somewhere in middle 2016 I admitted it. So about four years. Have you come out of the
  18. What would you say when you first see him? I wonder who's gonna blush first when you both meet. Can we have a follow up story when you meet guys?
  19. I had gay feelings early on (probably when I was 12 or 13), but up until about a year ago, I legitimately believed I was straight. There was some major cognitive dissonance, so I believed I was straight in order to be at peace. I obviously didn't know this was happening. It wasn't until I went to my university that I started confronting my thoughts. It probably took eight years to accept myself! The first person I came out to was Rida on October 12, 2016, one day after National Coming Out Day. I first came out as bisexual, but it wasn't because I denied who I was. I wasn't using it
  20. Hey there, In this thread, we will be posting our gay history. You will be doing it by answering a couple of questions listed below: How did you discover your homosexuality? At what age did you do it? How did you react to the fact that you are gay, by then? How long did it take you to face the truth and accept yourself? Have you come out of the closet already? If so, how did your social and work experience change? If not, how are you planning to do it and when? Do your siblings and/or parents know it? If so, how did they react to it?
  21. He's not an actor but Troye Sivan! @Kayzar agrees.
