After weeks of hand-wringing and some nudging by good friends, I finally got up the nerve to pitch a “Viewpoints” column to the Windy City Times… and they said OKAY! They said they’d give it a go, they’d start me online, and maybe if enough people were curious about what I had to say, they’d slip my words into the paper in a few months’ time.
Here’s how my inaugural post begins:
“What about our life is quintessentially gay?” I asked my partner this morning. I haven’t been an active part of the public LGBT movement in nearly eight years.
“Everything about our life is gay,” she replied. “Gayness follows us.”
What do you think? You can comment on Windy City Times’ site or you can comment below. Are you a parent? Are you gay? Can you relate? We all have stories to tell. Thank you!
