My name is Bruce . I am 56yrs old and just cam out in April of this year.. Just a brief summary before I send my coming out Story. I have lost my parents at an early age and been on my own at the age of 15. I always knew that I was gay but was afraid to come out because of what people would think. I have used Drugs and Alcohol to keep it a secret. I got married to a woman at the age of 24 and jjust separated a year and a half ago. I am now a recovering Alcoholic/ addict for the last 9 yrs. Since my separation I have felt that it was time for my coming out. This is my story that I posted on Facebook for the world to know.
Well its been an Interesting 2 weeks. I have been going throught some major changes in my life for the past while. It was about 6 months that I heard a speaker share his story and he inspired me so much that I said why Cant I be honest like him. I have always been telling my sponsees and other members on a constant basis to always be true to yourself and its not your business what other people think about you . Then just 2 weeks ago I had my best friend send me a little messa...ge to me saying I don't give 2 shits if you like men, Women or both that we are besties, your my brother and i love you either way. This meant so much to me that it started a new journey in my life. After talking to all the important people in my life one by one I have come to terms with my Sexuality and accept Who I am and what I am. I finally came out and now I can be the person I am ment to be which has been long over due. I do love the person I am and see today. Thanks to all for thier support. I know there are haters but I can accept that today. Its on them Not Me. Remember i am still Bruce. Love you all. and let me tell you that this is so liberating.
Since that time my life has changed and now I am the person I am meant to be. I have been doing all that I can to get myself involved with the LGBTQ+ community. and today I just feel so free. I really hope I can meet someone that I can love and will love me. This is what I had waited so long for.
Thank you for letting me share my story
