Dear Sambag,

Like most guys, back in high school I was way different than I am now. I grew up in the south of USA in a fairly homophobic area and since I’m a fairly masculine guy, I hide my sexuality from both myself and everyone around me. I dated a bunch of girls and I was fairly popular but I didn’t like the person I used to be. Whenever I finally accepted that I was gay in college, I cut most of these people out of my life except for a handful of them.

Recently, a good friend of mine from high school convinced me to come visit for our 10 year reunion this year. It’ll be a great time to catch up with the few 7-10 friends that I still care about. The only issue is that I’m planning to bring my bf and I’m not sure what to expect. I know a lot of the people I went to high school with were somewhat homophobic kids but a lot has changed in the past 10 years. I’m very comfortable with the man I am today but I know it’s a completely different person than I was back then.

Dear CK,

Expect your friends that you’re going to see to support you, expect that a couple of people will be uncomfortable and will likely avoid you and there will be some people that will admire your strength and courage for bringing him. Just don’t make a big deal of it and it will be accepted.

But I’ll stop there and let our readers weigh in. Please share your advice in the Comments below.
