    I'm out to very few people. My friend and I were discussing this gay wedding musical that was shown on TV recently. She told me how much she likes gay guys and stuff, and, yeah, it just came out.

    She's so excited about having a gay friend lol.

    Pretty proud of myself!

    Good for you. Glad it is going easy for you. Many generations of LGBT people have been working hard in hopes that future generations would have an easier time to be who they naturally are. icon_biggrin.gif

    Gay is not a religion or your not required to spread the word amongst everyone you meet. Rather pick and choose. Out your self to people likely who will be supportive and add to your emotional health. The average well adjusted person on the street should not care.

    A sister or girl friend is an excellent first choice

    Right on, brother. Comin out isn't easy. At all. It gets easier and easier to tell people—and frankly, you'll be surprised just how supportive some of your friends will be. You have a huge community of support behind you. Positive vibes heading your way, dude!

    Hopefully she doesn't become your fag hag.

    I say that because you said she's now excited about having a gay friend. That would imply that she likes the difference, potentially leading to a difference in treatment.

    For me, I hate it when people treat me differently, even if that means nicer than they usually would, because of my homosexuality.

    There's one girl I know that I feel is a little fag-haggy with me, like I'm some sort of cute pet.

    Sorry for the more negative post icon_razz.gif

    I hope you feel good about your expression icon_smile.gif

    Very happy for you. When I first started coming out to people it was very freeing.

    Thanks guys!

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidThat's great, bud.

    Do you think your friend suspected and wanted to let you know that it was okay by speaking positively saying how much she liked gays?


    That's exactly what I'm thinking too. Well I won't bother hiding the fact in future icon_smile.gif

    @Politimac - I know what you mean there. That's one of the reasons I've been so reluctant to reveal my sexuality to women in the past. I don't want special treatment. I'm just an ordinary guy that happens to like guys. Being gay doesn't mean I want to go clothes shopping or discuss celebrity gossip ;)

    Congratulations, OP. As some have mentioned here, it will only get easier for you as you progress through your life.

    I waited til I was 38 to come out to a friend. It's very hard the first time but it gets easier when you tell others afterwards.
