Patient discussion about gay

Q. Is this a malady if i am homosexual? because i feel sometimes very unhappy and outside the society... Some people would say - "oh yes", other could say: "i don't know, but i think this is not so common or normal", "homosexual? even the rats don't do it in the laboratories", "they should be exterminated", and so on. In fact we hear probably more bad stuff, than something else. My brother is homosexual and was very long depressive, because he could not tell it to our parents. Perhaps he is still depressive - a little bit from time to time. He lives with his partner. I do not pretend to have the key about it, nor the why nor the "how it comes". I share here with you what I have been taught some years ago. I can live with that. It makes for me sense. I know that many of you will not agree with it, but as long we have not a better explanation...

A. I've worked with different gay people, open and in the closet. I have nothing but good experiences with them. I have never had a talk with them regarding their bring up or how they discovered they were gay.


A. thanxs...very helpful...wInk

This book examines Korean female fans of gay male erotic relationships in films and other media, their status in Korean society, the relationship with other groups like the gay population, and their contribution to changing Korean media's portrayal of gay people and the public's perspective on sexually marginalized groups, showing how female enthusiasm for portrayals of gay men has allowed the emerging visibility of the gay male body in mainstream Korean media and that women's fandom has contributed to changing the reality of nonheterosexually identified life.
