    My Step-brother

    My gay brother is technically my step-brother, but we grew up together even before our parents were together. He's known me literally since I was ten months old. He came out when we were younger, but I can't remember exactly when. He sent my mom an e-mail and asked her not to...

    My younger brother is gay and I am too. We didn't experience coming out because they (parents and relatives) knew our sexuality when we were kids. I was the tomboy who played his brother's cars, played with the boys in our little neighborhood and even fight with them while my...

    Although I've known for years

    The Most Courageous Person I Know.

    I live in a white, christian, conservative, homophobic town in the middle of nowhere. My dad came over from England before either I or my brother were born, and had very strong left wing, atheist views, which I share, and as such we were probably the least popular...

    My Brother Is Gay And He Appears Miserable

    I am not really comfortable with the fact that my brother is gay. However, I do love him and am supportive of him as a person. He seemed to be on the fence about his sexual preference for years; going back and forth about being with men and women. He only has the discussions with...

    and his first boyfriend broke up - ever since coming out, he's been so different. he's become completely extroverted, and loves people, because he can finally be himself. I'm proud of him, he's a great role model, and he will always be my best friend. he's off to college next...
