Reflection on Homosexuality

I am a 19 year old gay man, who has had issues accepting being gay. Just recently I have accepted my sexuality and feel as though a part of me has been liberated. Three years ago I hated my self because of it and now I feel as though I have tools to fight obstacles that I have not yet beaten. One of them is showing my true colors not just to my immediate family but to friends. People will judge me by who I am, when in fact they should judge me by what I do. The though of being judged and hated by my friends, scares me to death. My family has always been open minded on several difficult issues and I am grateful for that. I have always felt that 'All men are created equal', but so many of us just do not see it that way. People want to believe that being gay is a curse or disease, but I believe that we are born this way and changing who we are is wrong. Being yourself is all that matters. Being gay isn't something you choose it's something your given and you can't' love something you don't. I think people have to be educated on something that should have been taught a 100 years ago. Societies have avoided this topic for too long, while so many people are suffering. People have committed sucide because people have told them that it is not ok to be who they are! I hope one day that people of all orientations will be able to join hands and accept one another despite one's differences!
