High School Bully Has A Secret.

i'm from san carlos, ca. by justin taylor

Like too many gay kids in high school, Justin Taylor was bullied.

I was a very closeted, afraid, little gay kid in high school. 15, 16 years old. Really afraid of people, really afraid of my attractions. And this guy, I don’t know how, picked up on it. And in the hallways in high school, when he would pass me, he would say, “Faggot!”

And then I found out a few years later that that guy, John, came out.
