I remember my dad saying he believed it was a choice, but that he also loved me, and that he would support me no matter what I chose to do. And then about six months later, he said, ‘I’ve been thinking about this a lot, and it clearly is not a choice. This is clearly the way you were born because as I replay your childhood in my head, I know that you’ve been telling us this since you were born. So no, this is not a choice and I love you and I will always love you.’ So I’m so lucky to come from a family where that was [the] response.
You know what I fucking hate. What I fucking hate is how gay men are presented to everyone in films, in TV shows, in ads (minute Modern Family. That show does justice). We are not all 6’ men who are skinny and started to work out so now we have a natural 6 pack. And above all we do NOT have a model boy friend. Gay people are stereotyped visually by the gay open industry, the media, and above all—- ourselves. It is stupid. That’s what I fucking hate.
