You must read this article! It is delightful.
This article and its joyous spirit also reminds me; I love being gay, and I love my life. In my childhood, in my adolescence, and if I'm honest also in my adulthood I often wished I liked girls instead of boys. Oh, the challenges it created! And now as my feet are firmly planted in adulthood, because after all at 32 years old I can see the shore of middle agedom, I'm so happy I'm gay. It's my life, and I love it.
Go appreciate what makes you different!
