...You're feeling completely alone. I live in a really homophobic place, so I would never come out to anyone here. The only person that knows I'm gay is my therapist. I just feel like I'm the only gay guy in the world right now. I don't want to sound like I'm whining, because I'm not, I just want to be able to discuss things that I have in common with other people. It's only a matter of time before I go off to college and can be my real self, but I feel smothered and supressed.

And ALL of those are normal feelings in the place you're in.

Of course, logically you've got to know you're nothing CLOSE to the only gay guy in the world. Chances are, you're not in your community, either.

Want to let us in on your city and state? Because we can probably help find you SOME resources nearby where you can find yourself some family.

I'm in Somerset Count in Pennsylvania. And I doubt there will be anything, but even if there was, I'm not sure that I could get involved. Like I said, not even my family know that I'm gay. But any help would be really nice.

Try this as a start: http://welcome.to/glcc/

It's Pittsburgh based, but chances are the folks at GLCC could help you find where you might find support and community nearer to you.
