If you've ever wondered if you're gay, lesbian, or bisexual, you're not alone. But sexual behavior is not always the same as sexual orientation. If over time your attraction to members of the same sex continues to grow, it's not a bad thing, it's just who you are.
Maybe you've been attracted to someone of the same gender or you may have even kissed or had other sexual contact with someone of the same sex.
There are gay people of every race, age, family background, and body type. The fact is, you do not choose to be gay, bisexual, or straight.

Although there’s a dearth of research into whether these factors are actually prompting bisexuals to choose relationships that appear “straight” to the outside world, there’s no shortage of research revealing that bisexuals live under uniquely intense pressures within the LGBTQ community: In addition to facing heightened risks for cancer, STIs, and heart disease, bisexuals also experience higher rates of anxiety, depression, and substance abuse, and are significantly more likely to engage in self-harming behaviors or attempt suicide than heterosexuals, gays, or lesbians.
When I started dating a woman for the first time after years of happily dating men, I had a go-to joke ready for when I was called upon to explain my sexual orientation to the confused: “I’m half gay.
Only on my mom’s side of the family.” I’m one of those people who’d always misguidedly “hated labels,” and I actively eschewed the term “bisexual” for years.
