"As a 29-year-old gay man, I spent the better part of two decades agonizing over that question [Do you like men?] and finally, when I was 20, came to accept that the answer was 'Yes.' It took another two years before I could tell my family, another year after that before I mustered up the courage to tell my closest friends and, well, six years after that to finally write about it in the Chicago Tribune."
