Coming Out, Part I

On the thread "About your mother," K posted this last night:

Tonight my gay best friend sent an e-mail in which he came out to his oldest and dearest friends, and to his parents. In this moment, he has been the bravest individual I've had the privilege of knowing. You are part of his support and I am grateful to all of you for being there. I believe that this blog will not remain anonymous for long, and I also strongly believe that he will be a huge strength to others in the future. I love you, H.

I love you, too, K.

She was at my side last night as I hit the SEND button and took the process of coming out to another level. I was so grateful for her support and love and encouragement.

All of my posts this week will be about coming out.

Thank you. I don't know what else to say other than your story is very important to me.
Everytime you post something I feel it speak directly to me, and I feel such strength from you that it helps me continue to try and walk in the right direction.
I'm so happy for you.
