I found this web site and wanted to share. It contains links to stories about coming out that I think most gay men can identify with.
Because heterosexuality is so broadly assumed, there is a process shared by gay people of constructing and asserting a gay identity. Most important for gay people is coming out to one's self, but coming out is an ongoing process where a gay person asserts one's identity as a gay person at all levels of a society that assumes heterosexuality and tends to treat gay people with disrespect.
Here's the link. As I said, it will lead you to other links where you can read stories that are fascinating.
