Gay pride is a beautiful thing. Don't hide from who you are. If people are going to hate you embrace it. They most likely don't know what it's like to love someone. Doesn't matter is your same gender or not. Love whoever you want.
"The then twelve year old child, that I was merely acquainted with back then, cried relentlessly on the sofa for half an hour before he found the courage to whisper out the truth. That he had experienced feelings for another person of the same sex. His eyes were filled with tears, reflecting both fear and shame." I WAS CHOSEN / - Klara Egilson
