When i was a teenager my taste for music, movies and friendships weren't the "normal" interests. That's made me a target. I never liked football, the national passion and what's considered men's thing, i always felt more confortable close girls doing girls stuff, and even without being effeminate, people start to comment.
After this i tried hardly to change myself. I hung out with several girls... but the feelings inside me... wasn't this. So i stopped fighting against me, if i like boys so it is... and finaly i accepted me for who i am.
There's nothing easy, and I'm still scared, but day by day I'm comming out a little more.
In this days i've been passing problems with my parents, they don't accepted the fact i'm gay, my mother has this foolish hope that one day i'll find some girl ... and my father poke me everytime with some indirect words.
But i'm trusting that some day the things will fit in!

Sorry about the terrible english!
Duh.
