I’m attracted to both girls and boys. I’m confused whether I’m gay or straight!

Question: A while ago I saw two men kiss on TV and I thought it was really cute. But recently I attended a “celebrate pride” event with my friend who is gay. Suddenly many of the men seemed hot or cute and I was also hit on by a guy. Later, he held my hand and we talked for almost an hour and before I realized it, I told him he was cute. We connected emotionally but I’ve also been attracted towards girls and I end up getting really confused about myself. I’m unsure about my sexual feelings. It’s frustrating me. Am I gay or am I straight? Teentalker , 17-year-old
