"I was a boy crazy middle school girl, but I was also sexually attracted to girls. I was really confused. Was I gay or was I straight??? Luckily, when I became a freshman in high school I met one of my best friends - Brendan. He told me was that my confusion was not uncommon and he taught me about a scale - the Kinsey Scale. 'It doesn't have to be one or the other; black or white,' he explained. 'You can date boys but also be a little attracted to girls too! Regardless about how you feel about either sex, its on the scale! I'm a 6 - but you are probably a 2 or 3, and that's ok!' This was a life changing moment for me. I already accepted and loved gay people, and I would have felt fine if it turned out I was gay, but I didn't realize that I could actually just have attraction to both sexes. Finding out that I could be somewhere in the middle was a freeing moment for me."
