    hey guys...I think I'm ready to slowly begin to tell others that I'm gay. There are going to be a lot of my friends and family who will be pretty shocked to find out, though...I've mainly only dated women up until now. Since I'm from the southern US, it adds on some extra difficulty in coming out (due to the overwhelming number of people who think it's wrong). Any advice??

    why should the southern part of our country be any different than the northern part of the country?

    Because when you go to the South...you go back in time....in more ways than one....take it from a Tennessee boy.....who grew up in the homophobic 60's and 70's....(and lived there for 32 years). icon_neutral.gif

    i keep forgetting, having spent my entire life here, that New Orleans may be located in the south, it is NOT the south... icon_biggrin.gif
