Declaring homosexual orientation

Coming out
Acknowledging homosexuality publicly

In 1996, the Belgian Vice-Premier was forced to make his homosexuality public in clearing his name after anonymous accusations that he had sex with under-aged male prostitutes. His political party concluded there was nothing wrong with having a homosexual Vice-Premier.


Increasing a larger number of young gays, including adolescents, have the confidence to declare their sexual orientation openly. The real problem is that it is difficulty for parent to accept the homosexuality of their children so long as society does not accept it.

Counter Claim:

It is fine for homosexuals to say that they should keep their sexuality to themselves, but that way they don't have to adopt a clear stand on homosexuality.
