Gay Voices' Love Files: Experts Give Advice On Being Newly Out And Ready To Party

We, here at HuffPost Gay Voices, are super excited to present a new feature called Love Files.

Gay Voices' Love Files is a love and sex advice series we've pulled together that will showcase an amazing panel of sex and love aficionados. We've been lucky to have some really great people on hand to help us answer some of your more intimate questions and dish on their own experiences.

We've gotten some amazing questions from you all in the last few weeks and we're really excited to get you some answers. Here's our first question:

I've been openly gay and proud for more than a year now, but I'm having trouble getting the courage to go to gay bars. I would like to meet other guys (and maybe get some action), but I have limited experience in the bedroom, and I'm worried I'd be out of my league. Any advice for us newly-outs who wanna make our first big leap into the gay party scene?

Below, we've rounded up the advice from our four amazing panelists. Share your own thoughts and advice in the comments or tweet them to us on Twitter, we'll keep collecting and highlighting some of our favorite responses.
