'How To Be Gay In High School': David Levitz Offers His Tips On Surviving The Four Years

High school can be a battlefield for many teens, particularly if you're gay.

Now, however, video blogger David Levitz, who reveals that he came out at age 11, offers his tips on how to survive high school if you're gay on his "Stories of a Star" blog.

Levitz, who calls the four years of high school as a "waiting game" (for others to come out), makes suggestions like not crushing on straight boys, staying away from Grindr and use social media to your advantage -- but don't worry too much about having a boyfriend.

"I assure you that once you get onto college or later on in life, there will be time for boys...you shouldn't neglect what you already have and take it for granted," he notes.
