    Hi, I am relieved to have found a place to talk to people who are going through what I'm going through.
    Not only am I new to this site, (and forums like this in general) but I am still a little unfamiliar with what it means to be gay and all that it entails. My hopes are that by chatting with the people here I can come to understand myself a little more

    Welcome!

    Why don't you tell us a little about yourself—only what you're comfortable sharing—and maybe a question or two you might have about your newly discovered orientation?

    I have been aware that I was gay for about 7 years now. It took me a while to come out to my family. Luckily, one of my parents introduced me to one of their friends that was gay and he was very helpful. I still don't really know much about gay intimacy, and I would like to know more at some point. But not now.
