Kole,That has happened to me <a href="http://eumhivzga.com">searvel</a> times.All I can say is that while it hurts,sometimes miserably,if the person you're in love with is really worth loving,it's possible to for both of you to love DEEPLY without sex_to have a bond that is blood brotherhood:AND to find acceptance. Equal rights,Pride[especially as the antidote to guilt,shame,self hatred] are crucial,but in an ideal world the real question about anyone's sexual orientation would be: What the F difference does it make?
