    Good for him - though to be honest, if anyone was paying attention, Connor old boy, we already knew....

    One of my cousins came out years ago - which just made it official, as everyone in the family knew it from early childhood (well, accept his mother, who was in denial at the time)

    It may not be true that you can always tell, but sometimes, yes, it's obvious.

    I came out to my car club (a bunch of import tuners) and was prepared for the worst but all i got was a collectively-shouted "FINALLY, GEEZE!" lol.

    Yeah, it's pretty obvious... And that's not a bad thing. If I made a video, people would be able to tell I'm gay too.

    It's sad however that someone of his generation would ever have to be in the closet in the first place, considering how different things seem to be now than they were 20 years ago.... But I guess coming out is still apparently a difficult decision, even when everyone already has you pegged as gay. I wonder if it will ever be easy.icon_confused.gif

    Without playing his vid. I knew the kid was gay, so I'm sure it was no big surprise to his family and friends.

    Hate when they cry. Either edit that part out or get over it

    Yeah, you'd probably have a difficult time hiding it, but I'm sure you have plenty of company.
