My adult (mid 40's) brother, told me for the first time last night that he enjoys cross dressing. He has been in therapy for about a year and a half, and is finally coming to terms with many issues, this just being one of them.

He lives in a really small town (read uptight and not liberal), does not have the support of his girlfriend, and I live across the country. What can I do (other than calling and telling him how much I love him) to support him?

I want to feel loved and accepted into our new culture and ultimately get the strength to come out. I have close friends who still don't know and would be angry if they knew. I'm sick of being closeted and feeling like a coward, I want to be brave.
I’m a 16 year old gay, closeted male.Ive known I’ve been gay since around the age of 11 but I’ve always held out in hope that it was some sort of faze. I feel isolated in school as I don’t hold the same interests as my peers and no one else in my year to my knowledge is gay.i am living a lie, constantly trying to justify to myself and others that I am straight and it is having a negative...
