How to acknowledge that you are a homosexual

From ArticleWorld

To Acknowledge That You Are a Homosexual means admitting that you are sexually and romantically attracted to a member of the same sex. It involves two people (both men and both women) falling in love and having a relationship just like a man and a woman might do. Nobody knows why some of us are gay, just like nobody knows why some of us are left handed, I guess God just made us the way we are. If you are not ashamed of being a lefty then there is no shame in admitting that you are gay. Here are a few steps to help you.

A few suggestions

  1. First of all search your own feelings and be sure of your inclinations, it might be that what you are feeling for a senior in school is just hero worship. Give yourself time and come to a correct conclusion.
  2. Don’t feel sad or get into a panic. You are absolutely normal and you are not alone. Do not also feel guilty and try to suppress your feelings under a garb of ‘normality’.
  3. Tell your close friends how you feel. If they are your real friends then they will support you and help you. In any case they will have to be told because it is not possible to hide feelings and emotions.
  4. How your friends take the news depends on how mature they are. In most cases they should be okay with it because nowadays gay couples do not feel as abandoned and marginalized as they did only ten years ago and being gay is not considered taboo anymore.


  • Explore your feelings for your friends (girls versus boys) and be sure before you commit yourself. At the age of 15 or 16 everyone is going through a confused state and you would be totally forgiven to not know your mind fully.


  • Don’t be afraid to come out into the open, you owe it to yourself to live your life on your terms.
