Ladies, gentle-ladies, this is a letter written to the forums at DNA magazine and I felt compelled to post it here...I also invited A3Ro (the author) to stop in and read your responses.
"I'm still in high school and have, just days ago, told my best (female) friend that I was gay. She reacted really well, though sort of refused to talk about it afterwards.
"Anyway, I'm really getting sick of keeping it to myself and would really like to be openly gay. The only problem is that I live in a rural area (a town of 35000 people) and go to a private school, in which they have refused to mention homosexuality. I know that many of my friends would reject me, and that I would most likely be bullied by certain people in the school. I'm not even sure of what the reactions of some of my friends would be.
"I'm just wondering, what do you guys think I should do? How did you come out and who to at first? What was the overall reaction?"
