This past year, there's been a lot of political talk swirling around gay marriage, civil unions, and the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy. But what about that first moment - when a person reveals he or she is gay? What is coming out like for today's teens? What if it goes against your religion, your ethnic culture, and everything your family believes? Many teens face depression, run away, and sometimes even commit suicide. So where do they turn for help? And why did they finally decide to tell people? Gay teens share their stories.
