It's great that you came out and you are feeling good now. True lgbt equality will be the time when people don't have to come out. It's a shame you felt under pressure to not come out sooner, I guess it depends a lot on your family and the people around you. I'm straight, but I'm open to the idea of not being. I joke about it with people, if they ask if I'm gay I'll tell them I'm not, I've checked (like I guess you did?), and put them on the spot asking if they have. It's funny the reactions you get from some people.
P.S. Linking to that video of Rorie made my day. Cheers!
