Via Chicago Tribune: Chicago high school wrestler Dylan Geick has a great coming-out story:
Last May, Dylan Geick was having lunch with some friends at Stevenson when the talk turned to the news that a fellow student had just come out as gay.
“One of the girls, kind of as a joke, turned to me and said, 'Oh, Dylan, when are you coming out?'”
His answer: “Right now, I guess.”
The senior, who is heading to Columbia, tells the paper he always remembers being comfortable being gay, so coming out was a natural next step.
He found his first boyfriend thanks to Instagram, when his sister was watching an Instagram video of a guy at his school singing:
“She said, 'Too bad, he's probably gay,'” Geick recalled. “My ear kind of perked up like, 'Oh really?'”
Geick messaged Mower, the two became friends, and they started dating. That got Geick to thinking about how he wanted to live his life.
“Once I accepted myself — which was the hardest piece — I knew I was going to come out at some point,” he said. “But meeting Grant and then starting a relationship with him, it definitely gave me a reason to.
“I really didn't like feeling like I was hiding something, especially a relationship that was important to me.”
Check out the full story, which has an even happier ending.
Coincidentally, he's one of Andrew Christian's bulges of the week, which more or less confirms that 90% of the time you're drooling over a guy in a singlet, he's probably barely old enough to drive.
