I've come to the realization that I am gay. I love one of my friends but don't know how to tell him. He is straight. I also haven't told my family I am gay either. I've wanted to go on a date with a few guys before but I am too scared to tell my family and friends. My dad told me and my siblings growing up that he can't stand "fags" and that he couldn't ever accept it if any of us were gay. I was thinking of telling my youger sister since she has always supported me in everything I've done but recently she has gotten very angry with me due to my "new" attitude. I've tried to be more open about it but either no one notices or thinks I'm acting strange.
