Civilizations throughout history have accepted same-sex relationships, and in some traditional cultures, homosexuality was revered. Yet in modern North American society, heterosexuality is still considered the norm. While this view is slowly changing, it doesn’t make it any easier for guys who are curious about their sexuality to admit it.
Some guys know from a young age that they’re attracted to the same sex, while others spend time questioning and exploring, confused about what it means to be gay, trans, fluid, mostly straight or bisexual. Men who don’t fit the stereotypical definition of straight still fear rejection and discrimination. Homophobia still exists in the world. Society has labelled being gay as immoral and unnatural, and those wrong assumptions still need to be fought. Meanwhile, many men who know they’re gay or who are unclear about their sexual identity hide and suffer in silence.
Being gay, bi, trans or fluid doesn’t need to be cured or fixed. It needs to be accepted as being normal. We can help you find your place in the world and build a support system of people who accept you for who you are.
Sex is confusing enough as it is, let alone worrying about your sexual identity. Suppressing your feelings and hide your true self can cause stress, anxiety, depression, or grief, which in turn can negatively impact your physical and mental wellbeing in a number of ways.
