“I am a 18 year old gay boy and I just read your article, “The end of gay culture…” It was very good and you are totally right. I never realized how much suffering previous gay generations went thru. It made me think about my self, I am “straight acting,” pretty popular, I have all straight friends… And besides not dating girls, I am just one of the guys. I only tell people that I am gay if they ask (all my friends know) but I have never had any one give me shit for being gay… I guess it is weird how much of a change that is from back then. Your writing was very helpful, it gives me a sense of cultural history.”
