    I can totally relate, but like they say, it really does get better. Just a shame that so many decades passed me by before it has. :-/

  2. I like this guy, so articulate and gorgeous looking. Many of his TV interviews are on YouTube.

  3. “Rogers added: “You’re afraid to tell people and be open with stuff and so it’s hard to just change. A lot of gay men and women who aren’t out and don’t really accept that they’re gay, live with a bit of self-hate.”
    And there, in a nutshell, is what drives homophobia. Those who cannot handle their own homosexuality express their self-hatred outwardly. If only this message could be more widely disseminated (Show me a homophobe – I’ll show you a closet case) I’m convinced homophobia would be stamped out.
