It feels like it’s been ten years or something, but in reality it’s been….what two years now I think.
My voice has been rested though thanks to not arguing.
How old were you when you first realized that you might not be straight?
I knew there was something different about me maybe in my early teens. I wasn’t like other gay kids where they know from like the age of 5 that they are gay.
I was brought up Catholic and told that homosexuality is “frowned upon”, or at least that’s what my mother told me. Then again using different words with my friends.
Anyway back to the point, I probably realised fully that I was gay about…three years ago roughly. It came out of the blue (only way I can describe it) and that’s why I increase my bullying with Kurt, I was scared of what I was becoming.
What are your fallback careers if becoming a sports agent doesn't work out?
Well at least I would have gone to college and been given the knowledge regarding sport and managing people to maybe become a manager of something else in the future….if that makes sense.
Not really thought about fallback careers, working in a car dealership would be kind of cool, i also heard there is a lot of money in retail management.
It must have been seriously exhausting pretending so hard for so long to be someone you weren't. Did you ever have days before you were outed where you just wanted to stop fighting and be yourself? How did you get through those days?
Yeah it was at times. I mean once I nearly did go into a park and yell that I was gay, which would have been liberating, but then i would have been paranoid about who would have been nearby to hear me.
I got through those days by playing sport and hate to say this…bullying others. That was at least when I was at Mckinley.
At my other school….just tried to fit in and be normal, that didn’t work but at least my grades improved, but also got into a funk….after you know about.
Have you ever tried singing for real? Not just the short adventure in McKinley but really getting into it?
Yeah done one or two things in public, but only to family and that was at a little party we did.
I don’t think i was good, but other people say i was so..not sure.
When you get married, will you or your partner handle the finances?
Why can’t we both manage the finances? Why does it have to be down to just one person?
I mean if one of you is in charge and they are not good on keepng tabs on stuff, then you could end up in serious you know what.
Do you feel comfortable initiating sex?
Never used to be, but now i’m fine with it depending on who i’m having sex with.
Some guys prefer to do it first as it makes them feel “like a man” if you get me.
Are there any genetic diseases in your family that you know of?
Uhh….think my cousin has diabeties.
I don’t know much about my family medical history other than my own and what my mom has told me…which is not much.
Are you afraid of gas leaks?
Only when my father has eaten something weird.
You don’t wanna be near him when that happens.
