Hi there!

Feels very weird posting on a web forum again, kind of surprised this place still exists.
I was a member around 2010 on GTF and with covid and boredom and delving into the past I thought I'd rejoin.

Did GTF close? I've been absent for the last 9 years so I think I missed some stuff.

I remember the original forum being really helpful to me when I was coming out of the closet.
Hope y'all well!

:awesome: :awesome: :awesome:

Hello, reggieregreg! Welcome back to the forum. You've been here longer than I have. :)

And amazing how we all grow within that time. What is GTF, if I may ask?

Gosh! You would have been 17. I have fond memories of that age!

Thanks!

Judging by the look of this place, I think the predecessor was called Gay Teen Forum? (GTF). But it must have aged up - some of the usernames here are familiar. I used the old forum for around 2 years I think.

Not sure if I'll be as active now but it's interesting to take a look!

I can't remember if it was called that, but not they accept older timers!

Out of curiosity, what were you looking for when you were on when you were that age?

Note to self: Man, this mind of mine is always active and curious all the time!

Not sure to be honest ! I think I was in the process of coming out while i was finishing high school.
It was probably just a way to try and communicate with other lgbt folk out there.
Anyway I'm in my late twenties now I think with Covid and lockdown I've been thinking about the past!

That's great that you reached out to others. Was it a small type of town you lived in? Sometimes, they can have little LGBT+ community and resources.

And yes, I still think about all of my accomplishments in the past. What I learned. Stuff like that!

Recently, if you haven't read already in my other posts, I'm switching many of goals to helping others. I think the world needs it, expecially in these times, as you mentioned. Many of these topics are considered in the "mental health" category. Soon, I'll be more of a coach and counselor. But it also meshes well with my being a coach where I work. Although, I do a bunch of things other than that. I suppose it keeps me stimulated!

How have those 9 years been besides Covid? I hope you have had a lot of great experiences. :)
