How do I know if I’m gay or not?
Many gay men say that they ‘just always knew’ they were gay – sometimes from as early as eight years of age. Others are not sure what they are and maybe this is not surprising. After all, we live in a much more ‘touchy-feely’ society these days. It is no longer frowned upon to hug your brother or your dad in public. As for footballers, they practically French-kiss each other every time a goal is scored. Many men, that would have had no previous physical contact in earlier generations, now have quite a lot. It’s okay to be a bit confused. The important thing is to accept that it is okay not to be sure. Take your time thinking about this issue. There are going to be men that you meet who are happily and confidently homosexual. You will also meet plenty of guys that are undoubtedly and effortlessly heterosexual and, unfortunately some that are vehemently anti-gay.
