    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...

    Jamesxjoseph

    My brother's name is Arien but I call him James and I love him with all my heart. He's been my support through all these years and I was one of the first he came out to because he said he trusted me. I met his future husband, Joseph, and I just think he is adorable...

    I found out a couple of months ago

    that my brother is gay. He doesn't know that I know, but I'm wondering should I tell him that I know. I have also been wanting to tell our mother what I know because I don't know how she will take it when he comes out, and I think if she knows beforehand then I can try to help...

    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...

    My Brother...My Best Friend

    My older brother is gay. He's known he's gay since he was 15, so 18 years now. He is my best friend and has been through thick and thin with me. He was my "gay of honor" at my second wedding. Him and his partner of seven years will be my newborn daughter's godparents. Love them...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    I Am The Only One Who Knows.

    Five years ago my brother told me he was gay. Hesaid, he had a secret, but I was the only one he trusted to tell, his big sister. He refuses to tell our parents, or anyone else in the family. Recently he started working as a plumbers apprentice. On the job sites he is...

    I actually don't really know him that well. A couple adopted him from my mom when he was a baby, things weren't safe for him. He seems happy where he's at. He's a gymnast, a really good one, and he's got a lot of friends. I see his pictures, they're all really fun looking. I'm...

    Yes

    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...
