A new blog showing reader-submitted photos of LGBTI people when they were kids is proving very popular and helping prove we really were ‘born this way’.
As his site takes off, American blogger Paul V says it was inspired by a gay friend’s MySpace pose of him as a child in a camp pose. “It showed that being gay is something innate and it’s not a choice,” he told CNN.
Since he started the blog a few months ago with a few pictures from friends, he’s now featured hundreds of photos which arrived in his email inbox from around the world.
“For one moment, if a gay kid is reading my blog and feels that sense of connection, and that sense of self-worth, and it saves just one life, I’m thrilled.”
