My Gay Life

The movie Pride

When I first knew… I was a late starter in terms of pinning down my preference. It wasn’t until I was in my mid-20s that I really understood what was happening. I guess I’d have to say that I “knew” once I was mature enough to reflect on the fact that I wasn’t just experimenting, or the old clichéd “going through a phase”.

My coming out moment… I’ve not had a defining coming out moment… Maybe this is it? I’m a private kind of guy and I’m lucky in that I come from a close-knit family and have great, supportive friends. Once I knew, I told the people closest to me and those who I felt needed to know. One of the funniest conversations I had was with my best mate. I’ll never forget his instant response when I told him: “You know I’m not gay, right?” To which I replied, “Yes, mate. I know you’re not gay!” Looking back, I wish I’d have grabbed his leg or something to really freak him out.
