Close friends of mine would know that if I’m nervous, stressed, under pressure, I’ll using English for a less emotional way to think, thanks to my poor vocabulary.

Today is a special day for many people, maybe myself included. It’s NCOD, National Coming Out Day. The date of October 11 was chosen because it is the anniversary of the 1987 National March on Washington for Lesbian and Gay Rights.
Most people think they don’t know anyone gay or lesbian, and in fact everybody does. It is imperative that we come out and let people know who we are and disabuse them of their fears and stereotypes.
– Robert Eichberg, in 1993
That’s why I chose to tell the truth today. In fact, this article was finished almost two weeks ago, and I’m fully prepared for this very moment. Well, let’s go straight – I’m gay.
Now you knew the truth ( Probably not for the first time ), and you have to notice that I’m still me, exactly the same person as before. I mean, nothing gonna be changed because of this. When I was a child, the small difference between other kids and me had been discovered by myself. For years hiding this truth made me suffering, but I chose to keep hiding. I was afraid of the dirty words or unfair treatment I would probably face at. However, I decided to come out at this big day, for the reason I don’t know till now. It’s just a relief for me not to hide anymore.
That will be all of it. After finished writing this, I found it’s not a big deal to me, if you haven’t told my mom that her son is a gay. She would be mad if you just did so. I feel safe to come out at my blog as it got little readers, partly because my mom would read my article. Feel free to repost it to anywhere. I’ll be glad if I could encourage more people to live themselves.
