Fast forward a few years when I got my confirmation letter accepting me into an Art School. I was so excited and proud of myself. But when I told my father, he said that he did not want me to go. He calmed down and asked me to stay and life continued as if nothing ever happened. Since that moment he never said anything about me being gay ever again.
Just before he passed away in December , I managed to have a final conversation with him. His reply was so sweet, words which I will never forget: he told me that he simply did not want me to have a miserable life growing up, because back when he young, there were no positive gay role models at all. He just wanted me to be happy in life. I told him I was, and he smiled. We made amends and said our goodbyes.
Exploring Bangkok's gay scene can be a bit overwhelming for first-timers. You can, however, join a fun gay night-time tour with a local guide to introduce you to the best gay bars and clubs. You'll not only get to make new friends but also learn about gay life in Thailand from a cute local!
For me, it was generally ok as I was never too girly acting or flamboyant in public. When I was growing up, homophobia was certainly more prevalent in Thailand, but mainly because people used to think that being gay meant that you wanted to dress up like a girl. However, it is constantly getting easier, especially over the past decade as we've had more positive gay role models in the media, and LGBTQ issues are talked about more openly in the press than ever before.
This is so important because it helps to normalise us and has created a more tolerant and open-minded generation of Millennials. I am lucky that I personally never experienced any homophobia growing up.

However, at High School, I always felt isolated because it was such a heteronormative environment, with little understanding or discussion about homosexuality. The concept of what a gay man is was very unclear. There were no gay role models and we never discussed LGBTQ issues in class, so I always used to seek this out elsewhere — usually by dating older gay men.
There was one time where I was sort of victimised for being gay: I was outed at school by a guy I was secretly in love with. After I told him I had strong feelings for him, he responded by telling the entire school! Is this attraction a hidden gem or off-the-beaten path?
