This is encouraging to hear. I'm not THAT far out of high school, but it would have been a big deal for someone to announce his/herself as gay when I was that age. There would most definitely have been social backlash. That's just the way it was. And again, this was less than 15 years ago.

It's amazing how quickly things have changed from one generation to another, that what would have been a big deal before is now basically a non-issue.
