My First Gay Kiss: Six Years Later


Six years ago on March 17th I kissed Jonah for the first time.  At the time, it was both wonderful and awkward; scary and terrific; and I was full of so many conflicting feelings, among them incredible guilt; incredible excitement; and love, love, love!  You can read about it here.

I remember the date well because it was both St. Patrick's Day and my brother's birthday.  Jonah and I were in Anaheim because we were on a Disneyland trip (our first time together).

Six years later and what seems to be a lifetime ago, kissing Jonah was one of the very best first steps I took to what has become a very happy and satisfying life.  I am filled with enormous gratitude for where I am now and how far I've come in my journey as a gay man.

No regrets.  Not one.

The first time I kissed a man was electric. That was when I finally knew I was gay. The guy dropped me two weeks later.

I did not date or kiss another man until my guy and I started dating last fall. Our first kiss was even more wonderful.

He bent over to kiss me last week as I was being wheeled into the Operating Room. That felt wonderful, too.
