Four weeks ago, I’d never kissed a guy; now I’m dating Joe. We grew up on the same street, been friends forever. And I’ve had a crush on him for years before I plucked up the courage to let him know.
Who keeps their boyfriend in the closet these days?
I want the world to know how much he means to me. No one gets fired for being gay any more, do they?

I’m twenty, I drive, I have a job. A young man, it’s true, still got my own hair and teeth. But on the inside, I feel like a little boy who might have his toys taken away. At times, I want to run to my bedroom and hide under my duvet for the rest of my life.
I’m going to come out, but not today, I can do it next week.
