Blogger David Levitz recently posted his video blog post “How To Be Gay In High School” which really made me smile.
He’s a smart, young guy who really seems to be paying attention to his journey through life. And, he does offer some very smart tips for folks who realize they are gay while still in high school.
Here are just a few:
• Don’t “crush on straight boys. Having crushes on straight boys ends poorly for both parties.
• I’m glad Grindr didn’t exist when I was in high school. I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with it but I definitely think people under the age of 18 should stay away from things like that.
• If there are no gay people around you, explore the YouTube community. I think if you can get to know someone at the other end of the country and it’s available to you – that’s what’s great about our generation.
Watch the video. I like this guy. He’s open, authentic and honest. Check out his other videos on YouTube here.
