Since I didn't have a confidant for my junior high and most of my high school years, I kept a journal in high school. I was one of those kids who really needed to see and hear a gay adult say it would get better.
My junior year of high school, I also found success as a member of my high school's track and field team, eventually qualifying for the Illinois High School Association track and field meet in the 110-meter hurdles and 4x400 relay.
One cool thing that happened to me that junior year? Seriously, I am thankful for some people's ignorance.
There was no way I could be gay and good at sports.
I was immediately struck at how natural I was at coaching and I attribute this to the awesome coaches I had in junior high and high school. They had a knack for making every member of the team feel important, regardless of ability and talent.
Those experiences and memories came back to me almost immediately.
I wouldn't go into a locker room for fear of someone thinking I had ulterior motives.Perhaps some of those who teased me didn't want to admit that a "sissy" could beat them into submission on the track.The feelings of isolation and loneliness continued on at the collegiate level.I tried to keep my sexuality to myself, which is tough because I have always been outgoing. The thing that kept me from following through was my mind — I thought too much.
I was also never interested in pretending to be interested in females. I considered all of the ways I would suffer more from failed attempts at suicide.It was cool being on the team that won the Illinois AA team title that year and most of my teammates are still some of my close friends to this day.I wasn't out to them then, but I'm out to pretty much all of them now, and am thankful for not only their lasting friendships but also for the awesome memories. That's not something coaches of high school sports say, but that used to be my thought process. In reality, I didn't want anyone thinking I was any kind of predator.
