you should not tell it unless they will ask it straightly, i think that your personal life it is not their bussiness and that fact that you are a gay doesnt mean anything and has no attitude to your job if you are not doing it badly. but if they are interested in your life you may say if you liek but you ay not if you consider it to be a secret. everything is up to you. they dont have a right to fire ou because of your orientation, dont be afraid of it.
I think that if you don't know these people well, if you cannot call them your friends, then my advice to you will be not to tell them anything. And not because you are unable to predict their reaction on your words , but if it is really important to you how they will react and you are araid of their reaction, then it is one more reason not to tell anything, but because private life is private life and work is work, there is no need in discussing your private life at work. You don't tell your partner about giving year accounts or making business deals, do you?
i think that you dont have to tell it to everyone, because all people are different and nowadays there are really lots of homophobes that can even make you some damage. people make like you and be friends with you, but when they will know this fact of your private life then everything may change. so it hink that there is no need in telling someone on work about it. if it has no impact on the quality of your work then it is not their business. and you do not have to do it.
Either hiding your orientation from your colleagues or telling about it out loud and discussing it openly is dangerous for youYou should not hide anything being panicly afraid that somebody will find out the truth, it seems very suspicious and your colleagues may suspect something much more terrible and dangerous than homosexuality. But on the other hand if you attract their attention saying 'look at me, I am gay!" without knowing whether they are gay friendly or not may lead to terrible consequences, so be careful saying the personal information.
Everything depends just on you, that's why you should decide it on your own, because it's your life, and nobody has the right to interfere in it without any reason. As for me, coming out at work is not so important, essential, and really needed for you, and moreover - for your colleagues. It's your private, and intimate part of life. If you want to be open, and honest with everyone in this world, then do it. But I think that it is a little bit stupid. At the same time, it is very brave thing. Make the right choice! And don't be afraid of anything.
You know, i think everything depends on how close you have relations with your colleuges...If you can call them good friends or just good people whom you trust and you are sure that they will never judge you, then of course, you may reveal your orientation to them, but if the situaton is opposite and are not friends with your colleuges and only thing that conect you is business, then i advice you to be silent and say nothing about that fact that you are gay. Because if you don't know these people well, then you can not know, may be they are homophobes :blink:
It's an issue only you can solve for yourself-are you strong enough,are you brave enough to come out and then deal with the possible consequences?It's not an easy task,I know-been there and done that-but if you want to be true to yourself-you won't hide it.Sure,if you're afraid of losing your job,cause you think nobody would understand,including your boss-you can stop for a minute and think about it.On the other hand,you can always try to switch jobs,it's not supposed to be that hard,you know.It's for you to decide,how to do it and should you be doing it at all.
i think that there is no need to tell you co-workers about your orientation and i even think that it is stupid to tell them about it because i am sure that it will influence your wor and their attitude to you. all people are different and i think that some may be jocking about it, think that it is not very pleasant for you. think twice about it, because i have also heard the cases when people lost their jobes just because of it. so you can see that not all people accept us.

I think that it depends on the work that you have. If your colleagues are normal and they are like your second family - you have to share with them, as they will find out it, anyway. But if you have another type of relations at work, you have to shut your mouth.
I think that your private life and your orientation is the private case and no one, except your family and friends should be aware of the details. Whatever whom you sleep with and whom you love - this is your own business, and you should not take care about their lives too. This is the work, this is not the friendship zone.
Place for chatting and discussion of important questions, place where you can share your stories and experience, to find friends and to become friend for someone.
