Hello everyone on here.
This is my first journal entry, as you can possibly tell.
Somehow, I don't feel awkward at all.
Probably because I don't feel so alone anymore,
I don't feel depressed anymore,
I feel like people can actually understand me now.
I don't feel like a freak.
People have called me a freak before.
Only because I dressed like a ninja on the last day of 7th grade.
I don't see anything wrong with it, it was just a one time thing.
I wonder what would happen if they knew I was a lesbian.
My classmates use "gay" and "lesbian" as insults.
I don't even know what I'm doing here; I just discovered this site today, but it looks like a lot of kids not all that different from me write a lot of stuff here that may be crap or may actually be kind of meaningful, so I'm willing to give it (whatever 'it' is) a shot without worrying too much about clogging up the Internet with my irrelevant musings.
Hi, I'm new (in more than one ways). Obviously, I'm new to this site, and this is my first journal entry. I'm not much of a writer, so please excuse my often chaotic and stream-of-consciousness like ranting. I'm, also, new to being / thinking myself as / being thought of as gay. Only a year ago (maybe less), I found out that I might not be straight. It has only been few weeks since I became comfortable / sure of my sexuality. I know it's kinda pathetic that I'm already 18 (and half) and only now am I beginning to figure myself out. (I think there is thirteen year old who know who he is.
So, hello. This is my first journal entry on this site- hell, it's my first journal entry anywhere online. (Oh, and my first time using html tags. Hope you can't tell.)
This being the obligatory introductory post, I should probably introduce myself. I'm- well, I'm not going to tell you my name for the usual reasons, but feel free to call me Leo. Or dykedancer; I chose it, after all.
Right. My username; I might as well tell you about it. I'm a belly dancer, and I'm a dyke. Pretty simple, right?
Well i guess this is kind of the awkward "um...hi" moment so um...hi i guess. So I'm oliver. I'm 16. And I'm gay. And I'm out to just about EVERYONE, as of about 18 months ago (fun times). And i live in Launceston, Tasmania which (for those who don't know) is quite literally at the very bottom of the world. And i know it's bad to start sentences with and so I'll stop that now.
I've been thinking about writing one of these for a couple months now, but every time I think about it, things get busy. Now is as good of a time as any though, right?
Family time is always a wonderful and horrific time. But what do you do when the majority of your family doesn't know you are a lesbian (perhaps they have their suspicions and all...but...)
