Rejection is normal

When I read the first story in this fascinating and unusual article, it didn't even strike me as odd that the two young men were rejected by their parents, so inured are we to rejection for being gay. My own lack of reaction bothered me.

One of the two guys fared much better than the other and, in fact, saved him. But he'd led the double life we all lead – until he couldn't any more.

The other stories on this page are spectacularly frank also. Life's tough, but it's worth it.
