Yeah, I'm Gay || Hiatus

James was 15 when he first felt feelings towards another boy. The problem was that Alex, the boy he liked, wasn't gay. James didn't tell anyone about his secret, he was terrified that he would be cast out from society.
Eventually, he told his best friend Mitchell. He supported him so much, and James wondered why he hadn't told him sooner.
Unfortunately, not everybody was so happy about his sexuality.
Author's note.
I felt like I needed to write this, as there are not enough non-fanfiction stories out there with an LGBTQ main character. I realise that this is a touchy subject for some people, so I'll try my best not to accidentally and indirectly insult them (e.g. Make James say something like 'Oh my gosh Mitch you're so out of sync with all the gay boys. Like, look at this fabulous little munchkin puffball, his name's Troye Sivan, ain't his booty cute?').


7. Confrontation

'Mate, all you have to do is walk in there and say it. Yeah?' Mitchell was trying to give James a pep talk before school. 'I mean, I know it's not going to be that simple or easy, but I'll be here for you, okay?'

'Mitch, you're literally the best, but it's going to be your fault entirely if everybody hates me.'

'They won't, I promise. Just-' The bell went for the first lesson. 'Just don't sweat it, okay?'


'Bonjour! How was everybody's weekend? Good?' The French teacher- Mr. Rowen- was the best teacher. 'Does anybody have anything to share with us?' Mr. Rowen nodded at James as he slowly raised his hand.

This was it. He would admit his sexuality to 30 people, then over the course of the week, everybody would know.

'Shu-ma-pell James.' He started. It was compulsory to start off by doing this; Mr. Rowen thought that it helped with the pronunciation. James breathed out slowly. 'I'm gay, and I have been since I was fifteen.'

A few girls 'awed' as he sat down. One was scribbling on a page of her notebook. She passed it over to James.

“You're really brave, well done. I'm actually thinking about coming out too, but don't tell anyone. Any tips?

-Kayla :)”

James smiled at Kayla.

A few guys snickered at the back of the class.

'What a douche.'

'Yeah, I bet his parents want to die! That'd be so embarrassing.'

James' head sunk down.

'That's enough, boys. James, that was very brave of you. Congratulations.'
