The first post... The start of an era...


So this is my brand new blog, and I'm hoping for it to be the beginning of a new phase in my life in which I explore who I am, and more importantly, who I want to be.

Let me talk a little bit about how this blog came about, and while I do that I'm gonna give enough information to go by about who I am...

So the idea of this blog was born about 30 minutes ago while I was surfing the web, when I stumbled across some blogs of gay guys telling the story of there lives. It inspired me how they discussed their lives, feelings and relationships; something that I somehow do very little, if not at all.
I, by the way, contrary perhaps to the authors of the blogs I stumbled upon, come from the middle east. English is not my first language (so please forgive my errors...), but odd as it may seem, I like reading and writing in English more than my first language.

I'm a 20 years-old man, and I come from a very religious christian family. I also happen to be gay.
In my community, homosexuality is a taboo. Most people around me believe it's an illness, and saying that someone (or something) is gay is an ultimate insult. So naturally I don't get to talk about it.
But today, inspired by these blogs, I though I'd change that. I gave myself the name Justin (the first that came to mind), and created a new blog!

I don't know if the blog will get many readers if any readers at all... But I certainly hope to use it as a platform to get to know people from around the world ...
