Hi, I've just recently accepted the fact that I'm gay and I've even come out to two of my friends... That was really tough for me and now I don't know what to do about everyone else. One of my parents wouldn't care, and neither would my sister, but I'm really worried about my step-dad and mom. He always makes snide jokes about gay people and my mom always laughs right along with him. He has even made comments like "I don't know what I'd do if you or your sister turned out to be gay..." among many other things... I really don't know what to do, I don't want to disappoint my parents and I don't want for them to feel like I'm a different person because of it I'm not currently seeing anyone and I have never had a girl friend, I know this is something they will try to use against me if I tell them. Should I wait until I meet someone to tell them? I just know in my heart this is who I am and there is no point in denying it anymore .... I just need some help.... Thanks, Stressed




How to make him discover that I am gay ?

Alright so I'll be pretty straight forward. I really like this guy, and I've liked him for a long time now. I've recently "come out" to most people, but it's not information that I just pass around to everyone. So: 1. How do I let this guy know, or find out if he already knows, that I'm gay? At least it would be a start if I could let him know that I'm gay and see what happens from there. What I'm trying to say is how do I start a conversation like that? I see him pretty often in some of my classes and we usually sit next to each other and whatever, but how do I be subtle in letting someone (whos maybe wondering?) know that I'm gay! 2.What the heck do I say afterwards?! I want him to know that I like him, but I'm not always that good at being so straight forward about something like that . Thanks! -Cool Bean


What if he tells my secret if I tell him ...

I'm a boy and I learned last year that I was bisexual, although I am more attracted to guys. I want to ask a certain guy to know whether or not he is homo/bisexual but i can't find a way to ask him. If I do ask him whether or not he is, and learn he is heterosexual, he might make my "little secret" public. I need to find a way to ask him without that happening, so do you have any advice ?


Should I come out as a bisexual?

There's something which is bothering me. A lot of mates ask me or talk to me about their boyfriends and girlfriends. Would it be a good choice to tell everyone? I have no problems with who I am but my mother often tells me I do not have to talk about it with a lot of people. I just want to be me, not to lie even if it is to a question of someone I am not close with. You see, for me bisexuality or homosexuality is not a problem but when I think at the opinions of others about it, I think to myself that maybe I am doing something wrong. It passed quickly but I am still wondering if saying it just to mates that I am bisexual is a good idea? Because you know people can be mean in college so I do not know what to do... I am really tempted not to hide at all but I am not sure what to do.



I am bi-curious but I don’t know how to approach ...

I am bi-curious. I have made out with a few dudes, but I want to explore beyond that boundary. My bestfriend is straight, and I don't know what his take on it would be if I came out of the closet. How should I tell him? Also, I'm not very good at the whole male approach, with women I can walk up to them and be ok, but with men I beat around the bush, and most of the time I get scared, because I don't want to be embarrassed if they're not into me. Help!


Was it right to explain to my kid that me ...

I just came out of the closet a couple of month's back.I have two boy's there seven and six, now the seven year old is the articulate one it's like he's been here before; I recently got into a relationship with my best friend of five year's but for my son's they know her as their aunt. So naturally, I had to explain to him that we are a couple now some people think that I shouldn't have went there but;I figure he is a new aged child he'll pick up if I don't explain to him. Did I do the right thing or was I wrong should I have waited until he was old enough to under stand?




Story – Mom and Dad, merry Christmas, I’m gay !

Christmas holiday season is back! A time of festivities and happiness... but wait… there is a catch! What would happen if it is you (yes, yes, you, the gay/lesbian of the family) who would introduce the man/woman of your life to all your family? What would happen if your family simply do not know you're gay or lesbian? Is Christmas a good time to tell? Let me explore this a little…
