View Full Version : Gay YW/and Coming Out
01-16-2006, 11:33 AM
How many you guys on this GL forum are gay and how many are just expressing straight opinion on gay issues? How many are out here and out out there?
I am gay and I am totally closet and don't think I will out to anyone yet. At least not in 2006. Maybe I could PM some of you? For advice?

I express a lot thoughts, but I have done and continue to engage in plenty of volunteer work with my community LGBT organisations and related societies at my university in England. I've done a fair bit of youth counselling so if you require any advice, please feel free to send me a note. ^.^

Review the whole of YW's GLBT forum, and see if any answers are there --
Here's at least three threads on the issue of coming-out. The first two threads are from others asking similar questions. The third is about an event that helped to bring people "out".
I'm sure that Chris, this forum's leader, would tell you that you do that when you are darn good and ready.

That is a lot of reading, much of it with conflicting view. I'm sorry to say I'm not attractive to most men I like anyway. I have seen lots of guys that make me feel 'wow' all over. I still get lots of wet dream about men with moustache like Tom Selleck type. That would be my type, but they don't look at me enough. :(
In karate and wrestle class I have to think hard of other things or get severely disadvantaged when training. I am aware intellectually that I can do more, go to places, but that just isn't 'me'. Plus I don't go for sissy type. I think my type of guy prefer sissy type though: willowy, thin, coy, no muscle. I shock them because I'm a work out fiend maybe?
(I'm closet but not a virgin I add!!!! But I don't waste myself with a handful of Kleenex either).
I will PM Chris, thanks.
Hmm...I do remember starting this thread a long time ago:
Feel free to add yourself in there if you haven't.

I came out in law school. Hae been fortunate not to get attacked but i notice some guys are too nice to me...like they know something about me that I don't know they know. It's my instinct but my straight friends who know me don't act that way--they attack me on stuff the same as each other. I have been with my lover many years and we are faithful to each other. I never tell anyone I am gay but if they ask i tell them the truth. I believe it damages the soul and is contrary to the Tao to lie about such things but that is just for me. By the way, i have no wish to be anything else. If i had choice I would prefer to be gay. I think my lover and I have superior relationship to what I see among our straight friends. They always seem at odds or dishonest with each other.
Oops. please excuse, lawyers never know when to shut up.
cheers to all
