When did you discover and accept who you are?

So when did you discover your sexuality or true gender? And when did you accept this?

I discovered being bi at the age of 14 but had a hard time accepting being bi until I was 24.

When I was in Grade 4 I had a crush on this guy from a grade 5. That's when I learned I am into older men 馃槖

It took me until I was 23 until I realized I was asexual, and that was mainly because I didn't know what it was. I always assumed I was just too preoccupied for sex.

I had been crossdressing for a few years before that and considered transitioning into a full-time woman for a few years after. I didn't really "feel" like a woman, but I also didn't feel like much of a man. I just felt like me, and it didn't particularly matter what I identified as since I didn't categorize myself like that.

After thinking about it for a couple of years, I just decided it would be more convenient to just identify as a man given that it was how the world saw me. I had the physical traits that were expected of one and didn't want to commit to a life of pretending to be something else. I dunno, that was maybe 3 or 4 years ago. I'm 31 now

I'm still learning things about myself, and I don't think that journey is coming to an end anytime soon, but as far as those two categories go, it was pretty late in life.

[@954098,TinyViolins] still learning new things about myself aswll. Hard to give everything a place. Nowhere near done learning

Do you only have no intressed in sex or also things like other physical contact?

I realized I wasn鈥檛 straight when I was 24.
A male friend got naked & kissed me, and I was incredibly aroused...in fact, so much so that I let him fuck me.

I started at a very young age. I knew how I wanted to be by my teen years, I pursued it and I think that I have done well.

Sexuality/gender actually was never a matter in my life.
But I think I have started in the age of 40 to accept me and things I can麓t change.
I knpw this is late, but better late than never. lol

I was confused for years until the first time I put on a dress and went out in public as a girl. It just felt so right and I love the girl I've become.
I knew my Gender Identity when I was 13, in 1970. However I could not make who I felt like, who I was, inside a reality until decades later.
