So I know that I am gay but like pretty much everyone here in San Eli is straight that I know about. I am panicking because I have no idea what to do next. Also, I know that I can’t change or anything because I already know it’s in my heart. What should I do about this?

I’m glad to hear you are pretty clear about who you are. So, what do you WANT to do next? There’s no official “next step” to being gay, Anthony—so stop panicking, already! J What’s your hurray? Relax. Take a deep breath. Look around you. Keep your eyes and ears open for others who appear to be open-minded and accepting. When you find someone who you think it would be safe to confide in, take another deep breath and give it a try.
