Thank u 4 the opportunity to share my story. In my region-the midwest-it is hard to come out of the closet becuz they are very closed minded in the small cities, which I live in right now. I grew up in a somewhat religious family upbringing and that made me "ashamed" and tried to go "straight" from 1989 to June 2005. I broke up w/my (now ex) girlfriend (that treats me like s*** now) because of "homosexual tendencies that I cannot control anymore". One month later, I found a male friend and we have been together (currently) for 3 months and 4 days now and I have NEVER been happier!!!:)
Anyway, back to the topic: there are only 2 people that know what I am--my mother and my sister who are both very supportive of me. I never had a "fashion sense" of any kind until now, thanks to my BF who has me wearing Eddie Bauer, Ralph Lauren, Polo etc. U get the idea.
