  1. Congratulations on coming out! I hope things are a bit easier for you now.

    Also, especially in this current climate, it is really positive for the mainstream to see public faces and hear their stories.

    Well done!

  2. Congrats

  3. Thanks Graeme…..you are helping a lot of people by doing this.

    Welcome out Graeme, and keep wearing those lycra shorts!

  5. Nice news to read. I agree, tattydog, Graeme explaining why he felt like he did and how things are working out OK even though it wasn’t an easy is encouraging to many other people who may be in a similar situation. It also serves as a reminder that while some people have absolutely no problem coming out, for others it’s not so easy.

    Congrats and well done – and I agree about the lycra shorts ! :)

  7. Congrats Graeme.. It doesn’t matter how or when you come out, as long as you are comfortable with your decision. I know that life bites when you feel that you don’t measure up to others expectations. Being an ex-RCMP. Canadian, I know a bit of such things.

  8. Graeme, cycling glory, to become a legend for many cyclist generation including mine is FAR BEYOND sexual orientation. And as Mercx once told after a Tour de France stage, you still have a pair of balls, that is what counts at the momento of getting on your bike and make history!
