My name is Daniel.
I am a 25 year old gay man.
See this is something I say a lot.
Why does gay define me and what not?

Well, I was never taught to accept myself. My head was filled with self doubt. My school with its basic education said ‘ sex is just human nature ‘. But for the longest time I knew nothing about sexuality. I didn ‘t know how to express myself. I was constantly stuck thinking I was cursed- forgetting that life is really a blessing.

My mind raised so many questions. The only one to teach me lessons was scripted porn- a gift and a curse. It showed me what to do but it gave me expectations that just weren ‘t true.

My community endures then endures more, lacking the basic knowledge to earn for more. See if they taught me it was okay to be me instead of teaching me about the white man that conquered my people…

Maybe, I’d be way further along then, now. Maybe the thoughts that create clouds of self-doubt would be lifted.

See knowledge shouldn’t be held… it should be gifted.
