I started feeling this attraction towards my same gender when I was only 6. At first I just thought that it was something weird that will pass but as I grew up I realized that I’m bisexual. I’m nervous to tell my family, but thanks to the few friends I have told my secret to, I have more confidence about me being bi. Now I think I’m ready to tell my family since I know I have support from some people.

We are all human and everyone needs to work on accepting people for who and what they are. They do not have to agree with everything but they need to be accepting of it. I pledge to always support my sons and their life choices and most important love them unconditionally.
