    Straight people do not come out
    they do not reveal some secret

    the whole process of coming out
    makes it seem like there is something
    wrong with being who we are

    I am not ashamed and I am not going to feel
    like I have to let others know

    heterosexuals do not do this.

    What if oral sex was considered taboo
    and we had to come clean with this.

    I am sure there are no easy answers, but
    I care and love my family and friends for who their are.

    Not what label they use to describe their sexual preferences.

    For sure. What about if I had a boyfriend and wanted to bring him to a family dinner or something? Questions would be asked and unless I wanted to lie I would have to come out.

    We don’t come out because there is something wrong with us. We come out because we are a sexual minority and if we don’t say anything then most will assume we are just the everyday heterosexual.

    Coming out did change my life, but only for the better. I don’t tell most people unless it comes up. The only people I ever really cared about knowing were my family.

    I agree with you about loving people for who they are, not whatever label they give themselves.
