Out to Build Bridges

Information

Out to Build Bridges

This is a LGBTQ+ group.  All men are encouraged to join, including straight men.

However, unlike the already established AoM group "Gay and Bisexual Men", this group is wide open, no privacy settings enabled.  

The overall purpose of the group is to encourage conversations between the straight and non-straight communities.  This already happens in AoM, but it is scattered.  And it can't happen in the private "Gay and Bisexual Men" group.

Debate is expected, but this is for building up bridges not tearing down people.

Main rule: don't be a jerk.

I have decided not to come out to my parents. not yet anyway, I'm just not going to worry about it, since they assume I'll never be dating any women anyway

I'm glad to see that coming out to people is working out well for you so far.

I am still friends with my brother in law, despite outing myself to him last year. I told a few more co workers and one of my bosses from work last night. I'm glad to be out of the closet

I have still not come out of the closet to my parents yet, at the moment there is no need to, but I am satisfied with the way I finally told my sister and best friend in the past year

Hey Michael. Lots going on in RL as the concert season draws to a close, and I'm nearing the end of my securities licensing.

Coming out to my closest friend hasn't affected our friendship at all. I felt a lot better having told him, as for my parents I doubt they'll ever find out since they won't react well
