  •  For myself, (3+ / 0-)

    I was 35 when I came out, so dealing with the gay thing was completely separated from the "Who am I?" dilemma of late adolescence/early adulthood.  On the other hand, I didn't get the full answer to that question until my mid-30s.

        I was living in Baltimore at the time.  There is an LGBT health center in Baltimore called Chase-Brexton, and under their psychological services, I was able to participate in a coming-out support group.  I knew I was not alone.  Nothing like that would have existed 15-20 years previously.  And even in those days (the '90s), there were a lot more gay visibility in the culture than there had been before.
