Jonas, age 8
Pernambuco, Brazil (1994)
I was the "different" kid in my class. I was "the fat, the freak, and the gay."
I remember at age 6 watching Britney Spears dancing on TV, and I knew the choreography for "...Baby One More Time."
I was so innocent back then. Now, I've gained the respect of my straight friends.
But, I am still struggling to gain acceptance from my parents.
However, I am very happy now.
And I wouldn't change anything about myself, because I was born this way.
