In celebration of National Coming Out Day, the guys at the “Gotham Volleyball League” (the largest gay sports organization in New York City) are sharing their coming out stories.
For Chris, his first coming out was back when he was in Kindergarten, and REALLY liked one of the boys in his class – so much so that the prayed to God about it.
“I came out of the closet when I was 14”, Chris tells in the video.
When I was in Kindergarten we were asked to get on our knees and pray and ask God for something that we wanted. My mother told me that I asked God to please make it be OK to make out with the boy next to me when I was older.
When I was 14 my mother found a note that I wrote to my friend – talking about how I made out with this guy at Church camp. It was the same boy from back in Kindergarten.
At some point, my dad asked me “Would it help if I got you laid with a girl?” – I said I don’t think that would help. But thanks very much.
