On our Discussion Board, a man who says he is a closeted high school basketball coach, is seeking advice in dealing with his situation.
I am a closeted high school basketball coach, but also a leader in the sports community. I serve as the president of the area coaches association and am also a state and national rep. ... I do feel that I could be a great leader in the community once I come out, but am wavering. I'm really not sure how high school kids and parents would react if they found out.
Realistically I do not have many gay friends, so I am looking to find a community to be a part of and eventually move on with my life. Let me know what you guys think.
Our readers always have thoughtful things to offer in these cases, so go to the board and have your say.
