I'm a dreamer. I'm European. I'm awkward. I see the world with gay eyes.

 

Today, the 5AGs are back. Brings me back to a time of my life when I was feeling miserable and watching those guys made my days a little bit better.

I was sitting in class all day and now my lower back hurts.

I was caught stealing gay porn when I was 14, I always consider that my coming out. It was so humiliating. I had been stealing porn for a while, I had quite a little a collection. I would bring it into the house but then I’d get nervous so I’d hide it under a mattress. [One day] I had been stealing porn and I had three magazines underneath my shirt. I guess the certain magazine that I picked up had a sensor in it, and I set off the alarm. I had to go back to the woman who asked me if I had anything in my backpack – she was giving me the benefit of the doubt. I couldn’t be like, “Some porn fell inside my pants” – I lifted up my shirt and I had tears in my eyes. She took me to the back room and they brought my dad in, showed him the nature of the material that I was stealing. It was really, really humiliating. So I always consider that my coming out process. My dad specifically wanted to hear me say it, so when I stole the porn, [he asked me] “Are you gay?” I was 14, I didn’t really know. I didn’t know what I was going through.

I remember this guy. He was the younger brother of one of my parents’ co-workers. I was 5 or 6, he was probably 16. Whenever he was around, I would look at him as if he was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen. I had to look at him because I knew that when he would leave, I’d be missing seeing his image and feeling the butterflies. I didn’t what it was, it just was.

I also think coming out was easy for me because I had a gay uncle. Well, easy and difficult cause he was masculine and I wanted to polish my nails.
