I'm am upcoming senior in high school and of right now in the closet Well a week ago one of the most popular juniors came out of the closet today. Like someone you would never expect at all, he said he didn't care what people thought so he just wanted to get it over with. Of course, being friends with some of the most narrow minded kids, a good amount of his friends abandoned him and won't talk to him, but some (Including one of his best friends who he was always with at school) have taken it to the next level and have written some nasty stuff and have done horrible things to his car and house. One of my friends told me that he's probably transferring high schools now and he has deactivated all social networks he has. It made me very sad so I thought about it, should I come out to help him? He has it very rough right now and I thought it is no better time than now. Not to sound cocky or anything, but I do consider myself higher up on the social chain so I was thinking if another popular guy came out, it would help realize it's okay to be gay to these kids. Most kids in my grade honestly don't care who's gay or not, so what do you guys think? Should I do it?
