Welcome to the Kurfew Junior page.
Many gay people begin to realize
their sexual orientation at a very early age. This page is provided
for and maintained by the members of the younger gay community,
who can't yet go out to clubs, but would like to participate in
a community of their own. We have two special contributors
to the Kurfew Junior page. Dave,
a cheerful, multi-talented, openly gay high school student, who
began writing for Kurfew Junior when he was 14 year old, and Brent,
a bisexual college student who began writing for Kurfew Junior
at age 17. Both of these boys are heroes for coming out at a time
when there's still a lot of oppression and homophobia in the schools
and the world around them. And what's most remarkable is
their incredibly positive and healthy outlook on life. They
demonstrate that simple honesty and self-acceptance can be the
keys to a happier life for young gay people. And in the
process, our email feedback shows they've brightened a considerable
number of lives...and probably even saved some lives as well!
Dave's column is called "Just a Boy in
the World." He begins with his coming out story at age 14, and
describes how life has been in successive updates. There's
even a story about the reaction Dave has encountered from schoolmates
after they've seen him on this web site!

Brent tackles an array of questions that
he has encountered from his friends, family, religious leaders
and others and touches on these issues iin an incredible mature
manner. His confidence in himself and his skilled manner at handling
homophobic schoolmates is an inspiration! Brent plans to contribute
more content on the subject of bisexuality, which he believes
is not understood by either gay nor straight people!
