    Congratulations! As someone who also just came out this year myself I can tell you from experience it really does get better from this point on. Not perfect but it is a hell of a lot better then still being in the closet.

    Glad your family was so great about it. icon_smile.gif

    Your story brings a tear to my eyes. This is wonderful.

    BTW, I know Apple Valley a little. I had business with a community college there that I visited, and I had gay friends there, some of those pics posted here before. And sadly, I once had to go there to bury one of my deceased Army ROTC cadets.

    But a place where you will likely find some gay life, not to mention the Twin Cities to the north. I'm so glad you're out now to fully enjoy that. icon_biggrin.gif

    Mucho happy for you man.

    My one year anniversary since I came out to my folks passed a month or so back. It feels GREAT not needing to lie to your folks anymore.

    Again, congratulations! Big step towards emotional freedom

    If all the internet ever did was help one gay guy live openly as his true self with his accepting parents, that would have been enough.

    Congrats. Your toaster oven is in the mail.

    Very awesome! My parents are just now starting to take to it and even use the whole, "Who're you dating?" thing... 3 years later.

    Glad yours went much better than most!
