another thread got me thinking about something. I didnt come out to the public till I was already on my own. Reaon being is when I was younger a boy in my neighborhood was gay, no if's and s'or buts about it. Well it turns out he was caught giving a blowjob to another boy and was caught by his older brothers. They beat him for about 2 weeks and got worse. one night they were drunk and got tired of giving him rope burns. they took him into the woods tied him to a tree doused him with gasoline and threw a match. he was burned pretty good, (still alive) but major scars. and his brothers are still in prison for another 6 years. my quesion is were you comfortable and safe when you came out or????
