Coming Out Stories Gallery - Buck

It was pretty easy. Seems like everyone knew in my family already. My mother has suggested that I go visit my gay brother in San Diego and go to college. I did. He worked at a "gay" travel agency on Park Boulevard and I took a part time job doing reservations and data entry for them. I happened to get the only available desk which was the first one by the door. Our lesbian mailperson came in one day and sat down on the edge of the desk.

"Where are you from?" she asked.

"South Carolina" I replied.

"Really, how'd you end up here?"

"My brother lives here and works here." I said.

"Oh, so are you gay too?"

Momentarily shocked at the forthrightness of the question, I paused. After all, I'd never said it out loud and to a stranger. But then....

"Yep! Sure am!"

Suddenly I heard whispering behind me as Jimmy, one of the owners picked up his phone and called my brother's desk.

"He's OUT!" he whispered. My brother called the owner's desk in a back office.

"He's out!"

Soon they were all laughing and congratulating me.

It was a great experience.
