    I'm interested in hearing about when other people realized they were LGBT.

    For me it was a long process and a long story. So here's the shortened version: I can remember having feelings for guys and girls as far back as sixth or seventh grade, but I didn't realize I was actually bisexual until a few months ago, and I'm 23 now! That's quite a long time before I put the pieces together.

    If anyone is interested in hearing the long version, don't hesitate to ask. :slight_smile:

    I realized I wasn't strait about a year ago, but when I thought about it I have been having these feelings for as long as I can remember. But I guess I'm still not done sorting out the details that might come with more time and experience.

    P.S. would love to hear the long version Eric :slight_smile:

    I realized like half year ago, well I never felt like a girl but this was the time I figured out what's going on.

    I was questioning around 16 or 17. But I knew I was bisexual at 19.

    I always felt different, but didn't know about LGBT identities until middle school. I realized I liked girls when I was like 12 or 13. And I didn't realize I was on the trans spectrum until I was 15.

    I was 14 when I start to think about it. I'm still not completely sure.

    Realized I wasn't straight in 2012 around the beginning of high school, didn't figure out I was gay until about September or October of 2015 around the beginning of my senior year (12th grade) of High School.

    I had same sex attractions from the time I was 12 or 13 (I'm 15 now) but I never actually thought about it. Only a few months ago I started questioning my orientation. What happened is that a boy was kind of.... I'll use hitting on me for want of a better term he was probably joking but anyway he said "I'm assuming you're into guys" I just smiled and raised my eyebrows but that got me thinking " am I actually into guys" then I started remembering all my attractions and stuff and they were all on girls so that started my questioning that still continues, but now I'm pretty sure that I'm at least completely straight.

    Began to think I might be bisexual or gay at around 12 or 13, but suppressed it until I got out of oppressive religion at around 15. Still figuring myself out though :slight_smile: I remember confusing my mum when I said I had a "boyfriend and a girlfriend" at around 8 or 9 :grin:

    Being trans? Realized few months ago, but looking back it makes so much sense. So... I guess I've been discovering myself my whole life? Still forging my female identity.

    Peace hope kittens love and world domination.

    I find it interesting that a simple question was the spark. I don't know why, but there's something about that that intrigues me. I hope you can figure it all out soon!

    I'm sure you'll get there. I have hope for you! :slight_smile:

    Nearly a year ago, I figured out my..."problem," I guess? You know what I mean. My best friend Came Out as bi after breaking up with his boyfriend, and the next day we were sitting in the grass talking and it hit me. The ball that is. I realized a couple minutes later. Looking back, I am banging my head against the wall at all the things that should have made me realized earlier, yet I had no clue

    Haha, that's an interesting way to figure it out XD

    As for me, I thought I was straight until the start of my second year of highschool, which was this year.
