I’m finally believing, after many years of sitting on the sidelines, that being gay shouldn’t and doesn’t preclude you from having healthy and strong relationships with young men, where ever they may sit on the sexuality spectrum. I’m open and upfront with these boys and they seem to respect that. I also listen to them, somethin…
Being that sort of role model is so important, LTS. For all the boys in the club.
I know one young English lad (eh, Fred Shirley) who’s quite passionate about cricket and who would have been quite pleased to know a gay cricketer was playing in his club. I think he would have benefited enormously to be able to be around another gay person.
And for the straight boys? Well, nothing like shattering a few stereotypes, eh?
