This month, Sept marks my 24th year after officially coming out, who knows if I will be around RJ for the 25th silver anniversary so I went with the 24th
August of 1990, I was invited to a back yard toga party with straight friends. Short story, it got around that I was or might be gay and my 'secret' 4 year affair with my high school buddy was being exposed. I was uninvited to that summer toga party and banished from all my straight friends, parties, gatherings and hangouts from then on.
I did have one separate friend in college who took me to my first gay bar in Sept 1990, the rest was history. Throughout the 80's, I didn't have sex with anyone except my secret high school boy friend and one girl friend. Once out though, horn dog took over, , I remember my first 'official' boyfriend of a year, Tom, later that same year. We spent Christmas together, baking and decorating at his apartment. Met all new people within the community.
Time goes by..so fast
