Being gay is hard. Being closet gay for months and then finally coming out, earning a punch in the face, and being shunned is even worse. Having it done by your best friend of seven years who you've fallen in love with and your extra Christian mother who believes you can't be saved, kills. 

But when Julian meets a new guy, a new guy giving out free hugs in front of the local mall. A guy who doesn't believe gay is a sin, who looks on the bright side of life, can he change his mind?

My eyebrows furrowed, "You're basically still in the closet..."

Raising the corner of his busted lip, he shook his head before running a hand through his curly black hair, "I'm not in the closet, I'll do whatever I want in public and not give a shit; I just don't find it important to announce my sexuality, people don't come out as straight, do they? Why should I come out as 'gay'?"

Also this is what I say : you never TURN gay, you were always gay. You just didn't know it yet.

I like that this includes straight people too. I'm OK with anything but I hate when people judge people. Kids at my school judge gay people but the gay kids are no better. They judge me and others for being straight.
I am religious but I think that god made you truly love one person and dosnt care if it's a girl or a guy (plus my best friend is gay) I wish my parents thought that too. They get uncomfortable with speaking of gay. But it's so dàm adorable

Get over it? I had a speech when I was 14.. am I being insensitive?
I couldn't agree more but I still want to believe somehow some people were born like that like they've always known it within themselves
I swear I'm going to shove this in peoples face at my friends church (because whenever I spend the night, I end up going with her) and say AMEN MOTHERFUCKAAAAA
