    Default Question for the LGBT community

    I hope no one minds me asking,something I've always wondered.... what age as a child/adolescent did you know you were GLBT? (For those who might not know, the letters stand For Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender)

    Thanks

    Default Question for the LGBT community

    My automatic reply is always 'how did you know you were straight' :-)
    But if I had to think about it I would say I definitely knew after high school. So i was around 17 when i realised what was different about me. I went to a Christian high school which made it really hard as they teach it's a sin.
    I knew I was 'different' from about the start of high school. I just didn't know what they different was.
    For me, it's definitely just how I am. I've never been with a guy, kissed, held hands or anything. I can't imagine ever doing so! I've never even had a crush on a guy

    For me it was when I fell in love (with another woman). I was about 20ish. I had been in relationships with guys beforehand because thats what my friends were doing but I didn't love or really care about the guys I was dating. Thats how I knew.

    Same as Candice.

    I didn't know. I assumed I was straight. And then, when there was never any sexual attraction to any of the men I started dating, I assumed I was asexual. And then I met DP and fell head over heels and realised I was probably never straight, but I lived in a world where you were straight until proven otherwise.

    I am just glad I was open minded enough to not discount my DP based on her sex

    About 14 when I realised that if I were a guy I would be so far homosexual Granted I really got into the gay scene as most of my chick friends were experimenting with each other and I had a thing for a gay guy lol, I didn't think ladies were for me though. Now I'm a little older I have considered ladies but I still don't think I have that real attraction to them, not on a sexual level anyway.

    I think it can dawn on some quite early but perhaps not be realised as 'gay' but more just they're not into the opposite sex, even before they start really getting into sex and having those intentions. I also know a lot of people who were late teens/early 20s who didn't realise they were attracted to the same sex for a long while.

    Before then I was not at all interested in people in that way.

    I I.d's as 'bi' for a long time before finding a better description under pansexual

    Just to clarify though I wasn't interested in sex til I was 17 and for a while thought I was pretty much asexual, I could find people attractive but the idea of sex grossed me out.


    Eta I comfortably i.d as gender queer and pansexual, neither of which your title asks about lol
    Sent from my HTC Wildfire S A510b using BubHub
    I apologise, I haven't heard of those terms (im straight, probably explains why I havnt heard those terms before lol)

    Correct me if I am wrong please, but is pansexual the term used for being sexually attracted to individuals from different groups (eg men, women, transgender etc)?

    Default Question for the LGBT community

    Op, my mother was married at 19 to a man, then to my father (until she was 40is) until I was about 4. She was then in a relationship with a female partner for 8 years. She has had both girlfriends and one boyfriend since then so I'm not sure she would still be classed as lesbian?

    Anyway, my point was, she always told me that she knew from when she was in high school but she got married (twice) and had children (5) with men as that was expected by her family.
