I am so very proud of you for giving yourself enough courage to publicly proclaim that you're gay. As your older gay brother, I vowed not to pry, not to disclose to anyone, and mostly be supportive of you in good times and bad. When someone would ask, I would simply reply "I'll love him no matter what." That was suffice for anyone asking.
To hear of your acceptance within our own family warms my heart. We all love and support you, and as your older brother, you are always welcome in my home at any time. I love you little brother, more than you know...
I encourage you to continue your life's adventure by accepting yourself, flaws and all, and getting to know that love in your life when he appears. I encourage you to take the bull by the horns and seize what life has to provide, for I know you will go far in life. I wish you the best and can only hope that someone can give of their heart in the same capacity as you give of yours. You're a terrific soul, kiddo... Truth be told, you're my secret hero.
Your big gay bro!
