The fact that I was out before I was 10 in the Aussie bush in the 1960s. Means I do not have one minute of shame to look back on, as my life has never been a lie. Yes this took the balls that many growen men do not have, or don't find them until they are middle aged, and have a trail of destruction behind theme ex wives and dysfunctional families, just for starters. I get to look back with pride, and no regrets; but then my sexuality has never defind me as a whole either. Albeit grown ups did not see it that way when I was a wee child standing my ground, no matter how much they abused and even torched me, just to make me back down, and I never did. Then to see grown men not have the balls to do what a kid in the 1960s out in the Aussie bush had, is pitiful. But then thats what also gave one the balls to stand by the gay community during our darkest years in recent time, the Gay Plague Era, when so many ran and hid. Its what gave one the balls to live out in the real world as a homo, in a long term homosexual relationship, and not some inner city gay ghetto.
It's why I have the soul of a lion.
