    Gay friends, yes.

    Gay relatives, well... I'm not sure. Sometimes I think my uncle is a fag.

    I have friends who are gay, and friends who are transgedered. I have trangeneder friends who were straight and still like what was the opposite and is now the same sex.

    Interstingly no family. At least not out.

    I've got a cousin who's bi, but we don't get along well. As far as friends and acquaintances, a few.

    But we are very good friends with a gay man and his partner who was the recipient of our eldest daughter's heart when she died from injuries sustained in a 1995 automobile accident.
    Amazing! Wow.

    Well, this is all I ever-ever needed to know about you.

    I think it's an individual thing. Every set of circumstances is unique. But in my own experience, coming out to one's family is often much harder than coming out at school/in public. There, you can make a statement--"I'm here/I'm queer/Deal with it"--in a very brave way (given what little dirtbags insecure adolescents tend to be) that isn't nearly so terrible as facing the rejection of one's father or mother.

    It's a bit off topic but...Well just reading the occasional news article, it seems to be getting better. There are some gay prom king/queen and the local HS has a gay student body prez, so not everywhere is Louisiana swamps. In those cases, it doesn't seem worth hiding it.

    Sometimes though all it takes for everyone to figure it out is acting fem or not having a GF, and in other cases they're outted by those 'close friends' or kicked out by parents. It's just highly variable and difficult for a teenager to assess the risks.

    Yeah small towns are extremely repressive, and everyone suffers as a result. From what i remember of it, you couldn't sneeze without the whole town finding out by the end of the day. Obviously in that environment, it's terrifying being... different.

    Re: Poll: Do you have gay relatives? Gay friends? Transgendered family/friends?

    No on all counts. No gay relatives, no gay friends, no gay nothing.

    The son of a teacher who was at our school, when I was in highschool, came out of the closet. I was in my final year of highschool, he was... i don't know, maybe the first. I remember there was a lot of chatter at school about that. I didn't care one way or the other.

    There was a video about him and his mother, talking about what they went through as her son discovered that he was a gay. I grew up in a small town... so that was the talk of the town for a month or so, until election season came along and people stopped giving a crap about any of it.
