What’s it like to fall in love in the closet? It’s weird. It’s beautiful. It’s heartbreaking.
A homosexual in love in a heteronormative world is a radical act of defiance. As dramatic as that statement may sound, it’s important not to forget the existence of that truth.
For those that have experienced the beautiful and traumatic experience of falling in love while in the closet, it deeply engraves in you that this is what (gay) love is.
To be clear, that is not what gay love is, which should be obvious, but sometimes it isn’t. This experience can have a lasting traumatically negative impact on the emotional development of a gay man.
When You Fall in Love in The Closet is a video by Buzzfeed that gives a glimpse into what that experience is like for gay men and describes all of the highs and lows.
