So... I was talking to may gay friend who graduated last year, and I was mad at him because he didn't come out in high school. I mean, jeez, he would have made me so much happier if we both knew about each other. And he could have been a role model for so many kids at school.
But I feel a bit like a hypocrite. Sure, I'm out to my friends and acquaintances, and I don't hide it from anyone, but I don't announce it either. I want to become higher-profile about my queerness, though, especially before I post my stuff on facebook. I don't know how much I can be of help to my closeted/uncloseted schoolmates at this point, but maybe I could.
The thing is, I'm a pretty private person. I don't go around shouting about my crushes, gay or straight. It feels like an excuse to stay closeted, but... argh. I don't know. I feel like if I don't know about your crushes, you don't know about mine. You know? But I want to be visible. More visible than I am.
Any advice on how/should I come out? Or general insights?
