We interupt this broadcast!
We interupt this broadcast! Well, thats as good a start as any to what will be undoubtedly my most personal post on this blog to date.
I have come Out. Of the closet, as in finally telling my parents and brother that I am gay.
This has been a funny and intense year this year. I finally decided that as I was trying to make a new life for myself with my job, I should also finally admit and confront those other parts of me that I had nicely suppressed for years.
So I came out in my own head about May/June. I came out to my friends in September, who were absolutlely great about it! And finally today, to my family.
Dad and Richard were both brilliant and supportive of me, but Mum has disowned me. As I suspected she might. Now all I can do is hope time and her ususally endless supply of love brings her around. Que sera sera. We will see.
So I hope you will forgive some of the more maudalin and reflective posts over the past few weeks. As you can see, I have had a lot on my mind.
So onwards and upwards into the future! Who knows what the future holds, but at least I can meet it head on now, what ever it is.
Now back to posting pictures of Moons and Mexico in future! Broadcast continues!
