Default Re: How did you first find out you were gay or bi?

That lasted for 6 months to a year, with me smitten with my older sister's friends. Then some of my brother's friends started hanging around more, and I realized I still found boys attractive. Confused, I started talking to my older sister about this and she explained the difference between straight, gay, and bisexual to me. That was a revelation! I knew immediately that bisexual described me. After talking to my sister about it for a few more weeks, I told her that I thought I was bi, and she hugged me and told me that she loved me no matter what and not to hide who I am or feel ashamed. I got incredibly lucky with such an open minded and tolerant sister.
It is nice havind such open minded sisters. I first found out when with a sleepover with a girlfriend and some experimenting gave us both great pleasure. I was confused but also talked to my sister and learned she was bi too and she explained a lot to me. Now so very comfortable with being bi.
