BuzzFeed sat down with eight gay men who shared their awkward and uncomfortable coming out stories.

They asked the group of 20-somethings about their coming out experiences, some chuckle-worthy and some tear-jerking. Questions like "Did anyone ever discover anything 'gay' of yours before you came out?" produced hysterical results, while questions like "What were you afraid of before coming out?" were incredibly relatable and moving.

An especially poignant moment on National Day of Silence, BuzzFeed asked: "What is it like to keep such a big secret for so long?"

The wide range of touching (and sometimes hilarious) answers from the guys underscores the variety of ways gay men navigate the world, and how far our society has to go so coming out can be a thing of the past.
