So, tonight I was talking to my boyfriend (*giggles like school-girl*) and we talked for quite a while. Eventually, we started talking about the curse/blessing of coming out of the closet. It then occurred that I wasn't quite certain if everyone in his family knows he's gay. So I asked, "Mark, does everyone in your family and close friends know youre gay?" To which he gave an immediate and resounding, "Hell no! There are some family members (and even friends) I wouldn't dream of coming out too." You see, he was raised in a very Christian home ... and that pretty much explains in a second what took us about three hours to get to. Deny it though he will. Nevertheless, my question(s) to LPSG members: Are you gay or bisexual? If so, are you openly gay or bisexual? If so, what does being open mean to you ... open to everyone regardless of whom they are or only open to those who you know will be welcoming? Is the former even a wise decision?
