    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...

    They Give A Gal Hope!

    My brother texted me a few years ago when I was in college to tell me that he was gay and that he'd been dating a guy we went to school with - he is only 2 years younger than me. I was not surprised, and now a few years later, I get to hang out with the two of them and they are...

    The Best Brother Ever

    I love my step-brother so much, we have been through really hard times together, and I guess all along I kind of knew. There were signs, whenever we talked about dating he would change the subject, he had a feminine air about him, he just liked playing with dolls and wearing...

    Why?

    Last year, in May of my junior year of high school, my twin brother told me and my siblings that he was gay. I had not even contemplated the notion, and it was a complete shock. Sure, looking back, there were times when I probably should have noticed something was off. But...

    I Love My Brother

    I really do love my brother, which is why I am so embarrassed to admit that I am not yet entirely okay with him being gay. We were both raised in such a homophobic, strict baptist environment. He has not yet even "come out of the closet" publicly, so I am happy that he feels...

    Bisexual I Guess

    I know he likes girls, because we'd look at pictures together on the internet. But he always seemed to like the boys too. I asked him about it eventually and he said 'i guess so'. No one else knows yet, but he seems happy. So i'm ok with it too.
