I hate how religions portray homosexuality

I hate when people start with religion and sexuality. They tell us how this stupid book says we can't be gay or whatever. They say its unnatural and try to 'FIX' us or abuse us. What if we don't want to be fixed, I certainly don't want to change my sexuality and third gender which I'm sure they are against too. Instead of trying to find a cure so people can be happy too, why don't they just leave us alone? My dad always brings up this stupid thing about how gays are wrong and how having same-sex intercourse is like doing it with animals. I told him that it's completely different because that's all about sex rather than sexuality and the animal can not make a mature choice as to if it wants to because it cannot speak so it's like RAPE, which is wrong. I'm really getting annoyed with the world's views on gays/transgenders and everything else. It's sickening. I want to help stop this madness but I don't know how. What can I do?? I feel so hopeless that the world is doomed to be forever like this.


I am androgynous and pansexual, but how do I communicate ...

Not to long ago I discovered that I was androgynous which was honestly the happiest day of my life. I've never felt so good to understand who I am. I'm also pansexual. But not a lot of people are familiar with these terms. A lot of people seem to blindly say things against who I am. I don't blame them for not knowing about androygnous but I do still hurt when they use words like daugther or girls or boys. I mean why must I choose a side? I just don't know how to get people to understand exactly what I mean. It's so hard to explain to them why I'm androygnous. I mean I didn't choose to be it I just chose to accept it and now I must try and and live with it and get by with all these questions like "please check male or female for your gender" I mean what do I pick? I'm reminded every time I sign up for something or even when I'm shopping in both "men" and "women" sides of the store. I don't know what to do anymore? How do I make this huge part of me known?!


Is there no way to give up homosexuality?

I am gay, but I don't want to be because my family hates gay people... I figure I could be gay for a long time now but I have been living in denial all my life, and it has taken my life away. I am always depressed and I used to cut myself, though I don't do that anymore. I am always angry at my parents, and I do whatever it takes just to make friends. I've already asked the "what if i turned out gay" question to my mom and stepdad, and both said that it wouldn't be a good thing for me to be gay. They said it was unnatural for two men to be together. Unfortunately I feel the same way. Is there no way to give up homosexuality? Of note, if it is a treatment that involves Jesus, I am not interested. I don't believe in "God" or "Jesus Christ" in any way, shape, or form. If there is truly no treatment, then I guess the guilt will get to me eventually.



Is enjoying anal sex an indicator that my boyfriend is ...

I want to know if my boyfriend is bisexual… He keeps putting vibrators and other objects in his anus and he doesn't know why he does it. I am concerned he may be bisexual, and I just need to know if my intuition has led me in the right direction… Thanks a lot!





Am I gay? Who can I talk to?

Dear AlterHeros Staff,

Well, I don't know if I'm gay or not. I used to think that I was, and I hated myself for it. So I started to condition myself to be aroused by girls, hiding for years. Now I'm realizing that I can't change my sexuality, but I also find myself aroused by girls. I'm confused and lost and depressed because I can't figure out what to do anymore. My school performance is suffering, I'm 21, my relationships with my friends are deteriorating and I'm distancing myself everyday from my parents. Can you help me please? I saw a psych already and he told me I was straight, I fooled him well... so well that I fooled myself.


It’s back to school at AlterHéros

One may be tempted to assume that being gay in 2002 is easier than it was twenty-five years ago. Without a doubt, people's mentality has evolved. Yet, much prejudice still exists, discrimination is omnipresent, and the subject of homosexuality remains a taboo for many people, especially for students. Find out how AlterHéros and its partner, Programme Action-Santé, help alleviate the problem.
