I'm Coming Out... But Not Yet.

Two days ago my brother asked me if I was gay. For a split second, I almost said yes. He said it most casually, even jokingly, after looking at my clothing and suggesting that my style is like that of Jamaican gay men. I was caught off-guard, and I considered my promise to myself to never lie if confronted. But I hesitated long enough for my sister to say, "are you joking, of course he is not!" Now, the uncomfortable discussion about my homosexuality has been postponed, but it wont be long before it returns. He also said, "you could never be gay. Don't you want to make beautiful babies like mine?" I wasn't amused, but I held back. Is there any easy way to just say it?


If only...


  1. It's never easy to say it to the people you've known for so long and cherish. You'll find the time regardless.
