Hi David,

being gay is who a person is, it is not a 'condition' that is treated or cured, and no approach like this is recommended.

What is more important is to become comfortable with who you are and there are organisations out there that can help you with this.

One such organisation is the Triangle Project in Cape Town who offer a number of different services including counselling and support groups. You can contact them on 021 448 3812, or their helpline on 021 422 2500 or check out their website at

Best wishes

Hey mate!

Well done! So now you know. Now what? check out a couple of places using the net. There's a great site gaydar. Don't trust everyone on the site, but use it as a tool to talk to people in the same situation as yourself. It also helps to find out where to go out in your local town. Don't go alone, take a female friend. She'll love it!

Don't pannic about being gay. But rather enjoy the new experiance that your freinds won't be able to help you through! If you want to chat about it more, contact me through the above link.
