Dating in the closet

As a man who dates men, these types of statistics are more than just numbers—they represent my reality.The first time I was kissed by a man in public, the hairs on the back of my neck stood on end.

Forced online, even those in favor of long-term relationship may change their minds after more traditional routes become inaccessible or uncomfortable.

But I wasn’t able to enjoy the moment with the man I loved.

Maybe it was because of my years of working as an advocate within the LGBT community, or maybe it was because I once returned to my car to find “faggot” written across it.

While gay rights, especially same-sex marriage protections, have made tremendous progress in the past few years, political headway isn’t always the same as cultural tolerance.

A 2014 poll commissioned by GLAAD found that roughly a third of straight respondents felt “uncomfortable” around same-sex couples displaying PDA.
