I owe so much of this to privilege and timing. It would be harder as a younger less established man, I at least know who I am and who my friends are.I totally agree with you brother but we say that with years behind us. I started meeting up with guys since I was 21, but didn't come out in the sense that I could admit I was gay until I was 36 and that is cos I moved out of the big city I was so widely known in my area of business. I came to terms as people and places of employment were just getting used to it. I staid in the closet for many years during my early career. I commend @dted23 for wanting to take the quicker, wiser route and make peace with it now. In all my years and experience, he has that much on me. He makes me want to be a better man. That is the light @dted23 is talking about.
I also live in California, I’m white, and I had the advantage that men like you have forged the path.
I just want to be honest. I’ve been as transparent as possible throughout this thread because I (needed to think out loud, needed support, and confess) but also because I think if we’re honest with each other we’d understand.
Understanding brings compassion.
