I can be myself here--and I like that. I'm a homosexual, but a lot of people that I'm close to don't know it. My best guy friend doesn't know, and he can't know...he wouldn't understand. But my very best friend in the whole world, named Kate--well, she knows. She has known since I've known. She was the first to know after I realized that I might like guys. She was the first to know when I got my first kiss from another guy. She's bisexual, and super-cool with it. She also promotes "out-ness"; she thinks I should tell almost everyone. She'll sometimes take it a step to far, though: she has flat-out told two people that I'm not exactly "normal". One day, in english class, she just told our english teacher that I didn't like girls...that's what she said--"Taylor doesn't like girls." Kate and I were working togather, and my teacher came back to talk to us, as she really liked us. Then, she told her dad's girlfriend Michelle...but failed to tell me that she had told Michelle. Needless to say, I was surprised when Michelle asked me questions about my homosexuality...but it's ok. I know Kate is doing this for the better, though--she'd never tell anyone that would hold it against me...both my english teacher and Michelle were cool with it...and this has made me want to tell my mother, as well as many of my other friends...I think my mom knows, but I'm not really sure...if she does, she's in denial, but wouldn't care if I was gay. Anyway...the reason for this rant is to just say this: I'm glad that I can at least be open here!
