Niklaus, in his own words: ” I have always seen my sexuality as only a part of my being human. Defining myself only through my sexuality seemed limited and restricting and didn’t feel right. So being gay means to me that I have a deep sense of respect for other people and I probably have a better understanding of feeling different from the rest. Therefore I’m trying not to discriminate or judge people for their choices and I am grateful to have been born into a family that taught me to treasure and respect the opinions of others.

Life is a continuos maelstrom of challenges and successes, I guess. My answer is: A lot and hopefully many more…

(With regards to coming out) Was 16. Told my mother and brother first, my father later the same night. Everybody was supportive and proud that I was able to come out to them. Boring, really.

The gay community in Zurich is as multifaceted and colorful as a rainbow.”

    I share your story, and I think same to me being gay is only a sexual orientation. Thank a lot cause I live in a small country where no to much people think the same.
