My twin sister is coming to visit me today. She's a lesbian too. Actually, she came out about a year before I did. I remember she was hiding these gay books under her mattress. I knew her best friend was gay, and so I just figured, that was why she was reading them. But one day it just clicked. "J" wasn't just her best friend, she was her girlfriend. Duh! Anyway, her coming out didn't really phase me. I was glad. Finally one way that we were different. If you're a twin, you'll understand. But eventually I could no longer deny the feelings I
was having for my
best friend. I know most people believe they were born gay or lesbian. Is there a gay gene? Are we both gay because we're twins?
