Im still a student in SL... about 1 year ago (when i ws doing my A/Ls) i discovered that I'm a Gay.... I have had some small experiences with few boys in my school. But I thought it as just a kind of fun...
However now I know That I'm gay... I don't what to change it because its a part of my identity... BEING GAY IS THE PICTURE OF ME... IT TELLS "WHO I AM"...
I'm a buddhist. I knw 100% tht my parents won't accept me as a gay... I knw they hate the word GAY even.. But i have to make my future...
Im not fond of having sex... i'm looking into a long relationship... umm.... not like "being boyfreinds". but being good buddies...

Disable people call them selves "Differently abled"..
being Gay is just like that.... People can't treat us bad, just because WE ARE GAY... V are a part of this world...
Any1 can't change it...
