I applaud you for making this decision. I told DH that it would be his decision to make for himself, and I would support either way - he chose to not disclose to most people. But then, when he finally did talk to his supervisor at work about it, and a few close friends, he said he felt like a weight was lifted off his shoulders. So I hope you feel freed up once you do tell people.
And that is horrible about your friend - I hope the police arrested the people who did the beating! That qualifies as a hate crime!
Lots of hugs to you!
