Coming Out Stories Gallery - Ben

I am a 19 year old boy from Cape Cod, Massachusetts. I grew up in a family of all boys. We were always pressured into playing sports. Even though I never enjoyed them. I always felt I was a little different, and last year I realized I really was. I had my first encounter with another man. I always wondered what it would be like, and one night I had a sleepover with one of my friends and one thing led to another. I continued to have a relationship with this person. I always felt guilty about it. After a few months though, I began to realize it was just the way I am.

My family always made comments about gay people, I guess that's what made it so tough to come out.

Finally I decide to though. I took my whole family in, told them everything that was happening, and that was it. My family was shocked , but also understanding. My best advice to people coming out is to just get it over with. Waiting to tell makes your life a living hell. You will feel much better when you get everything out in the open. Thanks.
