|It is hard to pinpoint how I knew I was lesbian. In high school I had a boyfriend whom I really cared for but when it came to thinking about sex with him it was a real turn off. However, I felt extremely close to my girlfriends and just wanted to be around them. My feelings for them were really strong - like crushes. I attempted on a couple of occasions to find gay bars but I wasn't succesful so I just dropped it.
After I graduated from high school I decided to move to CA for the free college (yes it was free at the time). There were a couple colleges that I was choosing between - one was in LA and one was in SF. I asked someone who had lived in CA what the difference was between LA and SF. He mentioned SF was really gay. I had a really postive reaction to that inside - and instantly decided to move there to come out. I had soooo much fun coming out! Totally positive experience! After about six years I came out to my family and friends back in Ohio.
