Jakob, age 6
Montréal, Québec, Canada (1996)
Me and my two brothers and my sister were more or less raised gender-blind.
My sister used to play with cars and boys' toys and my brothers and I had dolls to play with, too. Nevertheless I'm the only gay one.
And yes, I was born this way.
Like everyone else, I thought one day I was going to marry a wife and start a family.
When I was a child, my parents rarely made me feel that they were by my side or able to console me or help me.
Or even to just listen to me.
So I learned to solve my problems on my own.
I did not comprehend that I was gay until I was around age 15, and I first came out to my best friend.
When I came out to my parents at 17, I felt nervous and dizzy.
But they accepted who I am, and nowadays we get along well with each other.
