hey, I'm dealing with something rn, I'd like an advice... I'm 24 and I'm gay, only a couple of friends know, I'm terrified with the idea of telling my parents, they're the best parents I could ever ask for, and I don't wanna let them down. I think they'll be devastated, but a bigger problem is that I'm almost totally sure that my younger brother is gay too, and now the only thing I can think is that if someday he decides to tell'em, I will never do the same....'cause it'd be to much to my family

Hey, First I want to say, that I don’t think you are letting your parents down by telling them that you are gay. Most often being honest is the best thing to do and with you having the nice parents, they might just be cool about it. Maybe they will need some time to get used to the idea, just like your did and I did.

Second, no matter what, you are only responsible for yourself, what you say, do or feel, you are not and you will be never be responsible for your parents feelings and for your brother.I have known a couple of gay guys who had a gay brother and it was not a problem in their families. 

I dont know if you realize that the words you use when you write about gay are negative. As if being gay is bad or a problem, but is not bad or a problem. Being gay is beautiful and great. Ok, at first we have to get used to it and so do our families but then its fun :)  And we are as important in every family as any other family member.  If being gay was like inferior to being straight, the evolution would have made sure a long time ago that there would not be born any gay children. We are here for a reason, the reason is that gays are good for humanity.

Good luck with your coming out, I understand why you are struggling and that the idea of your brother might be gay too is making it much more difficult. But you dont have to come out before you ready, just do it when you feel its the right moment and try not to worry too much about your brother, he has to do his own thing. And you are welcome to write me again anytime. Take care, Jens 

I'm straight, but I have fantasies of sucking a guy's cock. And sometimes taking it up in the ass. But I wouldn't enjoy being in a relationship with another guy. Would that make me gay, bisexual, or something else?

There is a few ways you can answer that question.

First we have the multitude of sexuality scales, with the Klein Sexual Orientation Grid probably being your best bet. Here variable A and C would be most relevant and you would probably land on “heterosexual mostly.”

In addition to sexual orientation there is an Affectional orientation which may define you as a heteromantic.

Using both sexual orientation and affectional orientation you could identify as a heteromantic-bisexual. Or just use the umbrella term “queer.”

However you may not want to use these devices to label yourself or your sexual desires. In which case you will simple have to choose a label that you are comfortable with.

Hope that was helpful.

While sexually transmitted diseases affect individuals of all ages, STDs take a particularly heavy toll on young people. CDC estimates that youth ages 15-24 make up just over one-quarter of the sexually active population, but account for half of the 20 million new sexually transmitted infections that occur in the United States each year. This infographic highlights the impact, causes, and consequences of STDs among young people – and what they can do to protect themselves.

We would love some question submissions which you can ask in out ask box!
I've come to the conclusion that gay men only make good friends if they aren't attracted to you. Which explains why gay + girl = magic & gay + gay = sex or drama...

Kyle’s Response: Or sex and drama. More seriously, I have drama-less and sex-less gay friends. It’s just a matter of setting parameters as things come up and not ignoring underlying tension, which I have learned is more important than I had initially thought.

What do the Co-leaders think about the usage of Grindr and similar apps?

Kyle’s response: I have not personally used Grindr or any similar apps. I’ve heard good and bad things depending on what the user was looking for. They aren’t good for dating but they are good for casual sex and making friends if you’re willing to tolerate some unwanted attention.
