    I came out as gay to my parents and my family. Most people at school know too, I just can't seem to come out to the friends I've known since I was really little. Like 12 years of friendship and I can't do it. What do I do?

    Hello Bulldog, and welcome to the forums.

    Word spreads quickly no matter what the situation is, but what you may need to do is make sure that all the facts are correct or need to be corrected.

    You want to tell your friends, but know there maybe different opinions, but doesn't that happen to any of us when we want to say something.

    There maybe questions people want to ask, but only answer what you want, don't be afraid of who you are and remember some of your friends may have their secrets they want to tell you.

    Best wishes.

    Geoff.
