Heres a few episodes of wiredness going on in my life. Any suggestions are greatly appretiated.

Ok I was talking to my best freind latly and I was about to tell him that I am gay when out of the blue he tells me that he would'nt be able to handle having a gay freind. I of couse shut up and don't tell him. I think he knows something is up and he keeps bringing up the subject.

I finnally stood up to a bible study group that I was a part of in my church. They didn't know about me but they knew that I had gay freinds. They kept talking about Sodem and Gemora and saying stuff like how gays should not be allowed to parent. The statement about parenting got to me and last week I talked them down. I forget exactly what I said, but they ate their words. I'm getting a lot of pressure to leave my church and I refuse to run this time. I'm happy I found the courage to speek.

A straight /gay allience I helped to restart was fetured in a school newspaper. A poem I wrote about a freind of mine was in a school literary journal. Both things I'm proud of. I want to show frends, but it is obvious by both things my sexuality. I want to be pround but I wounder if im allowed to.

In life (off the internet) I'm totally straight acting and my dad and one family freind question if I am gay and if this isn't just a phase. With dad when I act myself he thinks I'm acting or something to prove my point. When I play straight he says that I'm too straight. The freind of the family thinks that I just listened to too much elton john.

I have to laugh at some of this. It is sad and yet some of it is funney in its own way. I just had to get it off my chest thanx.

JK - I too am proud of you for standing on your beliefs! \:D You are who you are - and you are good! \:\) You have every right to be proud of your literary accomplishments. You are okay! Don't be someone you are not because that always leads to trouble, confusion and more problems.


If you think you can or you can't - you're right!.......anon

Way to go Jonathan! I have an idea you may have opened some minds in your church group, "one of those, he wasn't so bad." Did anyone faint or start fanning themselves?

Scotty said it best, or in other words, to thine own self be true.

Didn't you say something in another post about how scared you were and felt you lacked courage? I only wish I had the courage you forgot you had.
