Well Chris, if it’s any consolation, I admire the courage it takes for a gay man (or woman) to live their truth. That’s not really something you can fake. It’s actually pretty easy to be a confident, straight man. It’s expected behavior. Swerve outside the lines though and there’s always someone there trying to knock the wind out of your sails.
Every single one of us has value and as a species, we’d do a whole lot better if we not only recognized our differences but celebrated them.
