People are tweeting about the first time they knew they were gay and it’s hilarious

Some people know they are gay at a very young age. Others, don’t come out until much later in life. Everyone is on their own journey and has their own timeline. It’s part of what makes us unique.

But whether it was when they were five years old, 15 years old, or 55 years old, most LGBTQ people have a general sense of when they first knew they were gay.

So without any further ado…
