The problem was, I grew up in a very predominantly white and conservative corner of New Hampshire. We had one black kid and no one was outright gay. To say my neighborhood was repressed would be a kind understatement. I was aware of a few girls that were kissing-interested, but they were more interested in their Realms Events and LARPING. That did not turn me on. Nor should it turn anyone on...
So, like most scared adolescent boys, I turned to drooling over sexy celebs. There are a few that stand out; ten in fact. Some I have a more cerebral approach to my crushing, but others...well, I was a horny teenager too, and not always thinking with my brain.
And I would like to add, that I am VERY PROUD to be bisexual and be living in a country that legally recognizes the union between two people of the same sex. We don't have to keep our mouths shut anymore and hide in the dark. It's freeing. Well, sort of.

The Yeah Yeah Yeahs fucking rock harder than almost anything that sucked its way out of the 2000s. She put her entire body into her performance and always got very sweaty. That's very important.

Ginger Snaps was described to me as "a werewolf lesbian movie." SOLD. Of course my source was way off, but I really loved the movie anyway. She was completely hot, even with a tail.
1. Anna Paquin (for life)
Her character "Rogue" was always the lesbian that couldn't come out of the closet for me. She couldn't touch anyone without hurting them and that's exactly how I felt back then. But she dolled it up with a sexy streak in her hair and black satin gloves. I love her voice. I know that sounds weird. But the way she walks and talks turns me on. And then several years after X-Men, she came out as bi-sexual. Oh man.
