Paul Vitagliano says he knew he was gay from about five years old, but he didn't come out to himself for another 14 years.

As an adult, Paul wanted other young kids questioning their sexuality to know they're not alone, so he started a blog called 'Born This Way.' The blog features childhood photos of gays and lesbians, along with personal stories inspired by those pictures.

'Born This Way' is now a book and it features everyday Americans and more well-known names like Congressman Barney Frank to Perez Hilton.
