Strange Story

Unread postby Andrew22 » 15 March 2020, 13:13

When people find out I am gay, I often get asked the same question, ‘How long have you been gay for?’ And I wonder, are they asking about when I realised I was attracted to the same sex? Or when I actually came out?

Or, is less delicate than that? Maybe they’re asking when I decided? Or was I born gay? Can you really be born a gayby? I don’t even remember being born my gender let alone my sexuality.

I was an raised an 80s child, 90s teen, in Belfast when there was still a divide between Catholics and Protestants, and the only thing the two religions had in common was hating homosexuals. I doubt anyone reading this would deny having some sort of childhood experience that hasn’t affected their adult life — for me it was homophobia. I remember being 17 and being locked in to a gay club (yes that was breaking the law, but not the first or last time) with blacked out windows because there were people waiting outside to beat up the gays. To this day, that moment has stuck with me – as has being called bent, a bastard, shit pusher, etc. In school, I was brought up in a world where homosexuality was not only frowned upon, but ridiculed. I remember being in a high school locker room and being told I was gay while being flashed at. I remember it clearly as back then I didn’t know what I liked, but I knew that I shouldn’t want to like that waving penis.

But guess what? I loved it.


Present day, I now live in London, run a successful business, and after 8 years of being single, I now have an amazing boyfriend who I’m in love with, but I still feel those events from the past have had a lasting effect on me.

For example; I was watching a film with my boyfriend a few weeks ago, and in it, there was a story line that featured a gay guy. In one scene he had met and fell for another guy, and like the start of all love stories there was the inevitable kiss, when it happened my boyfriend and I simultaneously let out a screech, “eeeeeeuuuuggghhhh – two men kissing? Gross!”

I won't clock the link. If the story was composed by some bot, it does look rather realistic. If it was written by an actual person to lure in people to click the link, I would have wondered, why the whole effort?
If it was a true story, yup, well I can relate, some folks may relate or do to a certain extent. Although I can't imagine to go like eeeew 2 guys kissing. if I was in that lucky a position. Watch them kiss, smile, kiss yer boyfried. How hard could that be?


Ah yes, I think people can be born gay. I never asked anyone heterosexual, if they were born that way, but I guess, it could well be.
