Early problems

Hi everyone
I'm bahai since 2010 but I knew the faith about 5 years ago.
I started as a young guy. I was 12 years old and I was really amazed by all the beautiful texts and all I had learned about the religion.
Before I accepted the faith, i heard all about gay people and all that we know. I was really sad. I though I could handle with this but everyday it gets harder. I've read about all of you, with 30, 40 or 50 years old but I'm only 17 and I dont know what to do. I feel like I can't refuse my faith in Baha'u'llah, I cant leave the Faith. I'd like to hear your advices.
Now, noone knows about my orientation and I'm not thinking in tell them. I'm gonna go on with my life as a Baha'i, but with my gay condition in secret.

 

Manuel
