Jay’s Story

So I first realised I was Gay 2 years ago when I was 17. I was really scared and in denial at first. There were a lot of things giving me signals but I didn’t want to accept it. I first came out to my best friend Georgia she was my absolute rock and without her I wouldn’t be the confident gay guy I am today.

So I decided it was time to tell everyone, I send a snapchat out saying I was Bi, which obviously wasn’t true I just wasn’t ready to tell everyone I was Gay.

The only people left to tell were my parents, and one night I had a few to many with my best friends and my sister found out because of a phone call we had. She then told me it was time to accept myself and tell Mum and Dad I was scared for so long to tell them as I thought they would hate me… but when I told them they were very accepting and as the days go on we are getting more and more close. Everyone knows I’m gay now and it’s so much easier. I’ve never been happier and I feel like I can finally be myself.
