I came out less than a year ago, and last semester here at school (I'm currently a sophomore in college) I had a pretty rough time internally with emotions/thoughts, all the usually stuff, lol. The thing is, is that I don't have hardly any gay friends in real life and feel like it'd be a lot easier if I had some gay friends around here to just to hang around with and be completely myself. I guess one part of this question is how do some of you guys meet other gay guys to hang out with, I'm not talking about hooking up, just hanging out..not even as boyfriends. We have an LGBTA here at my school and I went to two of the meetings the beginning of last semester and I never went again. I'm a really outgoing and friendly person, but I felt like everyone there already knew each other and they were all really "cliquey". And for the most part the people there, and the things they discussed were all about "I'm gay so my life sucks and nobody understands me...etc....", and that's not me at ALL!! Anybody have experiences with LGBTAs or anything like that or any advice?? Thanks!!
