Just wanted to say, I read your post in the Share Your Story thread. As an openly gay male myself, I'm really sorry to hear you receive that kind of treatment from people who are supposed to love you. I went through a lot of stuff in high school, not from family but from peers, before I was even out because most people apparently thought I was gay and took it upon themselves to make me understand I wasn't normal. So I can sympathize, to a certain extent. Just wanted you to know if you ever need someone to talk/rant to, I've been through some similar things. In fact, I recently turned 23 and it was only less than 2 years ago that I came out publicly because I was terrified to say anything until I actually had a boyfriend.
