My dad doesn’t seem to understand why i’m so excited about all the people who have come out over the past couple of years.
I was talking about how Ian Thorpe came out after years of denying it and how great that is etc. All he said was ‘It’s not that big of a deal’. Um, it’s a big deal! He thinks that i’m just excited about it because i’m gay, but i’m excited because these people who are in the public eye and are ridiculed all the time are being so strong and brave coming out and being honest and open about who they are and showing that they’re just the same person they were before!
