I grew up in a very accepting and gay-friendly…

I grew up in a very accepting and gay-friendly part of New York State. I came to realize my sexuality at a very young age (younger than I could possibly guess). I wasn’t very comfortable with myself until high school, though. I’d chalk up my feelings toward the same sex as wanting to be like […]
