If you saw James's thread then you know what I mean. He has come out and so have I but on Sanex we both pretended to be straight. Are we the only ones? There's 2 posters here from Sanex that seem to have come out coz I clearly don't remember them being gay on Sanex. I won't say their names coz it's their decision if they want to confirm it on this thread.

I had my coming out before joining the board. I've never made a fuss about my sexual preferences, but I think it can't be me, as we talked about it in TSL first edition. ;)

I joined Sanex in June 1999 and came out shortly after on the board, I know I was 15 when I admitted that I was gay, online anyway, so it must've been before February 2000. Think it was only a few weeks after I joined up actually.

- very few people knew about me on corel
- few knew about me on sanex
- every1 knows about me on wtaworld

so its been a gradual process for me :lol:

You probably don't remember me much, but I remember your first threads about being gay and some of your experiences.

I also remember talking to you one morning while we were listening to the "live" broadcast of the Wimbledon draws.

No it isn't you and as you say, it's nothing to make a fuss but I only do so (am I making a fuss? :lol: ) coz the two people I'm thinking of showed no real sign of gayness (:hehehe: ) on Sanex. ;)

That's exactly the way I was! :D I was giving hints but being non-commital when people (like Luke G) asked me if I was gay. :o

i didnt wanna come out cos i had a friend post on the board from 1999-2000 but he isnt in to tennis anymore, and then another friend of mine (rada) saw me browsing the tennis forums since about 2001. i wasnt out to either of them so had to be careful

And now you and rada are gay and good mates. It all works out for the best. :D

yes, it definately made us closer than we used to be :) made our frienship deeper as we laid it all out on the table and were able to speak openly about anything we want to

and its a 'pure' friendship. we dont view each other as a sexual object or anything and havent had sex or anything, which imo would taint our rship :)

Yeah he 'helps', helps introduce me to people when i go out seeing i dont know many. He seems to know lots of cool people. It helps bc its hard to approach people for me unless im quite drunk. :D

Coming out is a difficult process for many. Now, as far as i'm concerned, it seems really ridiculous to feel embarassed about one's sexuality on a very gay friendly message board but it's true that back then in 1999 or so when i was 19 (so pretty young and unexperienced i guess), i was 'straight' to the board (obviously cos i was 'straight' in real life!) and i was convinced about my sexuality.

Well as many gay people, you go through long periods of doubts before you finally accept who you really are and you actually get your first gay experiences. Then when you come out to yourself you happen to come out to the world and you start slowly but surely with your 'online friends' and then it might become easier to come out to your friends and family in real life.

Well that is what happened to me, i don't feel bad at all if i somewhat hid my sexuality back to the sanex years, i don't give a shit now about people knowing or not (except maybe i lost some opportunities to meet guys ;) aha!). Anyway McAuley, not sure you remember me but i do remember you and i've always thought you were gay. Comme quoi! :)

Fantastic post, Dahveed! I do remember you and I always thought you were gay as well but were closeted like me. On Sanex, I always envied the posters that were openly gay (like Luke G) especially the ones that were younger than me like Jonny who I believe was from England. He was in high school and already out but here I was a uni student struggling to accept my sexuality. :o

What does it matter if you are gay or straight anyways Mc Auley, no need for categories IMHO, but I get what you are all saying :)

It doesn't matter at all and you're right that there is no need for categories. At the same time, there is no need for shame about one's sexuality. It isn't necessary to publicize to the world that you're gay but you shouldn't struggle to utter the words "I'm gay" either. I find that sometimes when someone says they don't want to be labelled it's coz they are ashamed of that label.

In Perth, there are lots of Vietnamese people who were born in Vietnam but grew up in Oz. Some of the Vietnamese married white Aussies and had children. Some of these children are ashamed to be Vietnamese so they always emphasize that they are only half Vietnamese.

A person can be just as revealing about themselves by what they share as well as what they don't share.

Are you speaking of ASVFan or someone like that? (The boy would wished death upon Sabine Appelmans? :help::tape: )

Brunof I remember ASVfan, he was too funny:)

McAuley exactly a person can be more revealing by what they share from what they don't, I also think they if you are gay that doesn't necessarily define you as a human being, people str8 or gay have other things that define them as well. I just think that individuals have a stereotypical view of what gay people are like. i.e you could be the straightest person in the world but be slightly gay in your tone and style and vice versa

Hopefully some of that made sense:)

But anyways I think we live in a gay world:)

good question, but it seems normal for people to pretend to be something they're not online i.e 90% of this place probably :tape:
