I know everyone gets asked the "when did you know" question a lot, but I was thinking about when I "knew" and I realized I don't really know how to answer that. I only recently figured out I was gay, but there were a million things that have happened through the years which made me aware of the fact that I may not be straight. So I'm just wondering what other people consider "knowing" to be. Was it the first time you knew you had a crush on someone of the same gender? Was it when you finally started calling yourself whatever label you use now? Or was it when you knew that you seemed different from everyone else, despite not knowing what it was that made you feel that way?
