Okay, so some of you might recall that I "came out" on this site a while ago. I still haven't come out in "real life." The reason is that I'm a very conservative, registered Republican. I'm talking Rush Limbaugh, Ronald Reagan conservative, not John McCain, Rudy Guliani conservative. I fear worse-than-usual rejection from both my conservative friends and my gay friends. (My gay friends already know I'm conservative.) I know that if they reject me, then they really weren't my friends to begin with, but I'm just curious as to whether there are any other gay republicans here and what their experiences have been, or what some of your reactions might be to a a very conservative friend (I'm very outspoken, politically,)coming out. Thanks.
