Coming Out from Closet

I was always partially aware of my sexual orientation while growing up, ie I am attracted to men despite being a boy. I started coping with my surroundings by trying to act straight, because showing feminine traits often led to the nicknames given to people in the LGBTQ+ community within this “so-called perfect society.” Therefore, I hid in a deep closet—killing my inner desires of wanting to proudly shout that I am gay—for a whole 19 years. 

My True Self

Growing up in Singapore, I was constantly afraid of the law and of discrimination from my friends and family,  especially if they found out that I was gay. I acted “straight”, kept my relationships secret, and worst of all, pretended to be homophobic at times because of the pressure from my social groups. 

Proud of Queer Myself

I am Chloe, a very loud and promiscuous panromantic homosexual! I am proud of who I am, and comfortable in my own skin. Arguably, my experience in the queer community has been a pleasant one from the start, as I was able to find a like-minded community as soon as I accepted my sexuality.
