Since the gay social groups are inactive, and the LGBQ issues thread is too, I decided I'll put it here. If you've seen some of posts, (or now this blog entry) you'd know I'm gay. My problem is that I want to be open about it, but everyone I've told advises me not to. I've told my best friend, my parents, and my sisters. What should I do? Also, I want to be able to talk about boys I like, but my mom says "Stop it!" whenever I try to. It really upsets me.
