When I came out under stress about AIDS in my first job in London, my history with my father came out too, as it was part of me. Somehow that unintentional disclosure got into circulation and my mother from the north came and removed me from London and thereby took away my independence and forbid me contact with anyone I knew. I was hidden and cut off at their cottage in [detail removed by moderator] till I escaped with my life and fled. Coming out had destroyed my standing with my family and lead to my isolation in a not so gay friendly town. Slowly I rebuilt my life. My one remaining family member continues to try and discredit me to this day.
