When did you know?

It’s one of those questions that many of us get asked from curious people, both gay and straight alike.

Inquisitive straight people might want to know how you came to the conclusion that you fancied people from the same sex.

Other gay and bi guys might just want to compare their story with yours. For so many gay and bi people there are hardly any LGBT+ narratives on mainstream TV programming, particularly for kids or teens – so it can be much harder to come to terms with, or recognise your feelings and their validity when there’s nothing to compare it to.

When asked, most guys say they knew quite early on in their lives… Do you remember when?

For me was around 8-10 yo. My male friends would talk about the hot mamas and I couldn’t relate. I only had eyes to the moustache daddies. I wanted them to hold me and kiss me. [via]

I remember walking into a men’s locker room when I was a kid (around 9) and definitely something clicked at that moment. [via]

I knew before I even knew there was such thing. I was probably 5 years old. It’s just a feeling you get. You just know. [via]
