WATCH: “Outed Gay Brother” Storyline – “E.R.” [VIDEO]
I’m technically Out myself but I’m never sat anyone down to say “I’m Gay”…so the subject interests me…It wasn’t until I hit 30-years-old that I fully accepted being Gay [ie: seriously trying to acquire fellow Gay friends as well as Gay dating and relationships instead of just casual hookup sex]. But by then it was too late to “Come Out” like people do on tv (or on tumblr, lol). At this age, I’m a grown-ass-man. No need to sit anyone down to make an announcement about a sex life that doesn’t concern them. Unfortunately, when people know you’re Gay, that becomes your label. You become “The Gay Son” or “The Gay Cousin” or “The Gay Friend” or “The Gay Co-Worker” to all of the non-Gay people in your life. Example: “Hey Everyone. This is my friend, Nick Delmacy (whispers: He’s Gay).” So I choose remaining Discreet [not DL, I believe there is a difference].
Unfortunately, being “discreet” brings its own set of complications that we’ll discuss in later posts.
We’ve compiled all of the relevant scenes here for you to view and discuss.
The dialogue here that hit home the most for me was this:
“I was 30 before I faced up to being Gay, but my life got a lot better once I did.”
The entire video runs about 10-minutes:
