Growing up, I always knew there were something different about me. I think I allways knew I was gay, or at least kind of. I didn't start liking boys that way before in Jr. High,but thats an other story.
I was never the popular child in school. To be honnest, I was kind of a victim of harrasing when I was younger. I've always been a chubby kid, and people just se you for your exterior, and not what you have on your inside, and so they teased me, and it turned into harrasing, with phonecalls and treats. But I dealed with it somehow, and I kind of like to think that I grew on the whole experience. I have a much thicker skin now, and I don't really care what people say.
I think it has to be that way for me to survive.
