Did something big tonight......


Recommended Posts

For the first time I got up the guts to go to a gay club. This is a big step for me and I had a good time. I guess after 11 years, I'm at the point in life that I've just said "F' it, I'm sick of living like this". The big step happen on October 26 when I came out to my younger brother(whos also my best friend). I have also been tempted to tell my mom and I think she may already know, but decided to wait until after the holidays. Anyway sorry to to go off on a tangent and I know I have not been around long but I guess I'm just jacked up. My hope for New Years is this time next year I will good or bad be living as me for the first time since I was 11 :D

Congratulations, Thirdeye.

The club scene isn't for everybody, but some of the best friends I have known over the years were met when I was younger and did the club thing.

Coming out starts with telling that first person and sounds like your brother was a good choice.

All the best,

No problem, Thirdeye. In fact, this is the section of the forum to discuss these things. It sounds like your younger brother was OK with your news; if so, that's good. I hope things go well for you when and if you decide to tell your parents. Whatever happens, know that there are people who will listen and understand, because many of us have been through just about the same things.

Thanks dude! My brother is one of the most open minded people I know, and has some very good friends that are gay, that being said its different when its a brother or a son. I was scared out of my mind when I told him and for the two days afterwards when I thought he was in denial and I?d have to go though it all again, then I realized just how cool my bro is and how lucky I am to have him in my life.

Hey thirdeye--nice job! I remember well my first time in a club here in seattle...it was new year's eve at the Brass Connection. Had fun, did not go home with anyone, which was fine 'cause i wasn't ready for that anyway. It was incredibly freeing just being around all those other gay people for the first time in my life.

Congrats on a big step executed successfully!

cheers!

Yeah, that's something that anyone can relate to, the feeling you get when you're in a crowd of gay people, a very positive sort of feeling. You can also go to places that aren't bars, if that's not your thing or if you'd like to try other things, and get that same affirming sort of feeling. Gay churches, political groups or rallies, volunteering at your local GLBT center or joining local gay teams (bowling, softball, whatever). Sometimes its just amazingly good to be in a large group of gay people.

Good luck with your family, ThirdEye.

Kisses...
