In recent years the acceptance of gay people in our society is better than ever, More and more people are coming out of the closet as gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender. And It is a very good thing for people because the closet is a very lonely place, where depression is king and anxiety is queen. In today’s article I will be talking about the effects of being in the closet.

  
Compartmentalizing something as significant as your sexuality is damaging to the person in the closet, feeling of depression and anxiety is evident people who are closeted. They are lying to people who they love and what they do (for example, introducing someone as your friend and not your partner) like that. 

  
A historic prospective for you, back then people who are gay did not came out of the closet. People do play and play (have sex) in their 20’s and then they will marry a woman, have children and call it a day. The same time as the Stonewall riots in the 1960’s, people are starting to come out more and more. Gay people are more out there. 

  
People who came out of the closet are happier and more contented with themselves. They are not living a lie. People who came out are not likely  to be depress and anxious than people who are still in the closet. Furthermore the younger people came out of the closet live a much happier life’s.

  
Lastly, People have no place in the closet. People need to understand that by coming out of the closet, they are helping the gay community tremendously. Lastly it is not a rush coming out of the closet, when your ready to come outfcheck out my four tips on coming out: https://joaquinwriteseverything.wordpress.com/2015/10/12/lgbt-monday-tips-for-kids-on-how-to-come-out-of-the-closet/comment-page-1/#comment-
