Sharing A Secret - Outsports


Growing up, I always knew that something about me was a little different, but I was never able to put my finger on it. Throughout high school, I was still unsure of what it was, but it was more out of insecurity and immaturity. I graduated high school and left New Jersey for Lafayette College in Pennsylvania to play tennis. I began to come to grips with the realization that I was attracted to men, but I believed that it was just a phase. After taking numerous psychology courses in my freshman year, I began to think that I could condition myself to like girls by dating them. By my sophomore year, it was all I could think about: I was gay and there was no way that I could change.
