Does anyone feel guilt for their hetero past? As I more and more embrace life as a gay man I feel guilty for my past hetero life. I rarely mention it, never think of it and would prefer never mentioning if I could. As I become more involved in the LGBT community I feel embarrassed about my straight past. No one has made any negative comment it’s just me. I am jealous of the gay lifers who don’t have the baggage of a hetero past. I know it’s silly because the past is the past but I wish I had been gay from the beginning. Am I crazy or have others felt this incredible need to exorcise their hetero past?
