Thank you for surviving and for putting the words together to share your terrible story and for sharing your pain with us.
I say sorry!!! I have no words. I am just so sorry.

I wish I had your courage to share the story of my own "coming out" experience when I was 21. There were a lot of similarities (although mine was a single rapist, and the physical trauma I suffered was not nearly as serious - I was extremely lucky). The rape of gay males - especially when the lifestyle is already so closeted and discrete - carries significant complications that confuse the victim and keep him locked in a self-loathing silence. My heart goes out to you.

I agree with both of you that the man in the article is a very brave soul. I had not seen his story until today and thought it worth sharing here.

There are, for any survivor, many factors that need to be considered. A man being gay is one of those factors. I would like to see that explored more in this forum.
