I'm a 21 year old gay college student. I was raised in a strict Catholic household and attended Catholic school growing up. I have always know that I was gay and was tormented by guilt and shame for many years. I was deeply closeted and I believe a lot of my loved ones were very surprised when I came out to them on Feb 25, 2009. I came out in a big way. I drove back to my hometown for a weekend and told my parents, 7 siblings, and most of my friends. It took a lot of courage(and a lot of tears), and I still surprised I had the balls to go through with it. Right now I'm still trying to figure out what it means to be out. I'm lonely because I know very few gay people and my straight loved ones don't understand no matter how hard they try. Right now I'm just afraid to be alone because I can't hardly handle this crazy mix of emotions. I'm going to be fine...I know it. I would like feedback and suggestions from people who have gone through this very difficult process. I hope that this site will be an outlet for me to come to terms with the parts of my life that I have tried to change for so long.
