I’m glad I’m gay. I wouldn’t be miserable if I were straight, but because of the society we live in and because sexuality defines a lot more of our personality than we agree to accept, most gay people have to follow a path straight people don’t.
In my opinion, it’s mainly down to learning how to get over feeling different and coming to terms with being out of the majority.
As homophobia is still not considered as bad as racism, we have to find ways to overcome it within ourselves. How many of us have been bullied at school or are afraid to come out at work or even in their families? As long as no one is beaten up or victim of discrimination, the whole process is enriching in the long run.
