I AM...

I am whatever YOU think I am until YOU get to KNOW me. This is true for everyone else too, of course.. so don't make assumptions about anyone or pass judgment; ask questions. You might just make a new friend.

GAY MEN & THE ONGOING BATTLE WITH COMING OUT

One of the greatest challenges that gay men face can be summed up in two little words: coming out. No matter at what age we come to terms with our sexuality, whether it’s at adolescence or much later in life, it can be a heavy burden to bear – and confiding in a friend or close family member isn’t always as easy as it sounds.

But our society has evolved and attitudes towards gay people have improved. So why does coming out remain a big issue today?

  1. I think that it is easier to come out today. There are shows that portray gay characters, the Internet provides access to information and society (in general) is much more accepting.

    However, that really doesn't count for much when you consider how intensely personal coming out is for someone. It is hard to underscore the stress and worry that precedes coming out for many people *yours truly included*. Hopefully that will be less of an issue with each passing generation.
