Hi,

My name is Jaime, I'm 15 years old, Canadian, bisexual, and surrounded by homophobes.

I live with my mom, step-father and older brother, all of whom have a problem with my sexual orientation - which is why they don't know.

My brother and step-father both dissaprove of any sexuality that might involve same sex partners. My mom is okay with homosexuals, but thinks that people who 'claim' they're bisexual just want attention. Of course that's not true, but I'm not about to be the one to tell her that.

I told one of my friends once, and she never treated me the same. Since then, I've been very careful about who I tell, and I never really talk to anyone about it. Tonight, I told one of my friends, and he told me about this forum. I was so thrilled to finally have  a place where I could talk to other people who understand, and just to know that there are other people who are going through, or have gone through similar situations gives me a kind of hope I haven't felt in years!

Thank you for creating this forum, I'm sure it will help me a great deal, and hopefully I can help some others along the way!

jr.bi.95 - welcome to our community! I think you will find as you go through life that those "friends" who turn out to be homophobes aren't really friends at all - and they are the ones with the character flaws - not you.

That being said - if they really are a true friend of yours it may just be that they need a little time to sort things out and then they will be back with an understanding heart. Same with your family. It took my parents some time to accept that I am a lesbian - but now treat my wife as one of the family.

Have fun with this site and celebrate who you are!
