How do you know whether you are gay?

The number of gay people in our community is increasing. People are now being more expressive about their sexual orientation than they were in the past. If you are wondering about your own sexual orientation, then here are some advice for you.

Don’t be a stereotype

You may be more boyish or more or effeminate. That doesn’t mean that you are gay. There is no particular look of a gay person. Some gay people are very masculine. Another thing you should know is that you cannot be 100% gay or 100% straight. You need to identify where on the scale you fall into.

Explore your sexuality

You should find out your feelings about people of same sex. Do you feel any physical or emotional attraction towards people of the same sex? How do you feel when you are with a man compared to when you are with a woman? If the physical and emotional attachment is more with the same sex people, then it’s a sign that you are a gay.

Test yourself

You can test yourself by masturbating. Find out whether you are fantasizing about men or women when you masturbate. If more male figures come to your mind, then it’s a sign that you are gay.

After you find out about your sexual orientation, you should express it to your friends and families. The acceptance level of gay people in our society has increased. People are now more open to these. So, you shouldn’t have a problem dealing with it. If necessary, you can seek a support group to help you.
