I didnt know I was gay!

hello I dont know if this is story or not but I have been bahai all my life, eight years go is when I discovered that I started not wanting to be with males no more. But that I wanted to be with woman. so I figured that I was lesbian. I was scared at first but then after while I was proud of being lesbian and thought I was wanting to be myself and I was going to no matter what anyone said . I kept it from my parents two years go about myself and I didnt think they would talk to me cause they were really into bahai rellgion and they didnt want to have gay daughter. but they learned that they loved me and I was their daughter and they had granddaughter too. so they decied to accept me even if I was gay but it was hard. But my dad past way year go and then it was just mom she had hard time with me being gay for while but now she accepts me alot more. and I did find woman that I am very happy with that I am going to spend rest of my life with. we are getting married next year and I am moving in with her this june. the bad thing about bahai there are some stuff I cant go to cause of me being gay and living with woman. I dont understand why bahais can accept other religions and colors but cant acccept gays. so anyway this is my story. thanks

jessica
