    I’m 52 years old. I’ve been gay my whole life. but because of my family & friends, I’ve stayed hid in the closet. I was so miserable trying to be who everyone expected me to be. I wanted to burst out of that closet and tell the whole world im gay & i LOVE being gay. I realized I’m in this closet not because of them but because of me, I’m keeping myself in the closet. Who cares if someone doesn’t like me because I’m gay. So here real recently I’ve step totally out of that closet & pad lock the door behind me, because I’m completely free to be me now. No turning back it feels so good. I’ve told everyone, my kids and grandkids my brothers & sisters and all my friends, and I didn’t want to leave out anyone so I put it on my Facebook. Now everyone in my world knows I’m gay, If I can come totally out of the close and let my whole world know that I’m gay then you can too. I’m in a very very strict conservative family, and my brothers; my friends hasn’t spoke to me since I told them. But I’m happy. And the only time I ever experience enjoyment and pleasure is when I’m with a man, I’m Phillip Gessel; and I’ve been gay my whole life. And it feels awesome.
