Hi there,

firstly your posting name suggests you don't feel that good about having issues about sexuality. Being gay, or wondering if you might be gay does not make you a freak of nature.

One of the best contact points in SA is the Triangle Project. They are based in Cape Town. If you are not near there, there they can advise you of your nearest support service. You can contact them at

Their helpline number is 021 422 2500

Best wishes

My best (gay) friend is also 16. As i said, you just have to find people/friends you can relate to, not nessisarily bars(which i wouldnt have recommended if i knew you were 16!), but "gay friendly" places. Thats why i ask what part of the country you are in, so i can make some suggestions for you... It is really important that you have someone in a similar circumstance to yourself to talk to... Do any of your friends / family know about your tendancies...? (pls excuse spelling ;-})

Hey Freakofnature! I'm female and I have heaps of gay friends, I prefur them over strait males, You guys seem to be lacking the arrogent male side of things which is great! not only that but you can really have a conversation with them with out them assumming you wanna have sex. dont be ashamed to be gay

I dont expect you to give me your address, i'm just curious to know what part of the country you live in. Well... I only very recently got into the gay scene, and i'm really enjoying it. My family dosnt know, and i would rather they didnt know at this stage. I dont make it obvious that i'm gay, so i'm not criticized in public or at work, but i often visit (decent) gay bars etc, i enjoy meeting new people and making friends. This really makes me feel good about myself, as i'm becoming very popular in "our community" Unfortunatly 70% of the gay scene is about drugs and sex, so just be careful of who you hang out with or where you go. If you meet the right people, and go to the right places, you will really enjoy it.
