    Hi,

    Some of you may remember me (originally posting under "Cale"). For those that do, I just wanted to note that I have come out.

    Thanks for all your advice and support.

    Great to see you back Cale, and glad to hear you decided to come out. I hope living in the light will be a good thing for you.

    Cale, I can't tell you how happy I am to hear your news. Congratulations. I know it's been a struggle, hasn't it?

    I encourage you to post the story of how you did it. It will help others in your situation. Those who read your earlier posts will agree; they were sincere and open, and very self-aware. The kind of thoughts that help every reader to grow, whether they struggle with teh same issues or not.

    Don't hesitate to PM. I'm curious to hear the details.

    Once again, congratulations on taking the first step to a healthy, open, adult life.

    Good for you Cale, it's a great feeling once you have finally done it. It was the hardest, but best, thing for me to do.

    Welcome back Cale. I bet you feel a lot "lighter" now that the weight is off your shoulders.

    Now that your out of the closet:

    1. Hang up your shirts from off the floor
    2. Hang up your pants and other clothing items

    SEE how much more room you have in there now??

    Congratulations, Cale! Like you, I was lucky to have the love and support not only of friends but eventually of family, too. And all this way before cyber-anthing! I came out five years before Stonewall! But now you can live in the light, so cheers to you!!

    (With apologies to the redoubtable Mme Z for the inadvertent crib from her post about "living in the light." It was just so appropriate!) Belated thanks to you, Zora, and your indulgence, please.

    I think it's time that Cale learns the secret handshake! :smileysex5:

    (Okay, so that wasn't a handshake ... but it was certainly friendly!)
