“Coming to terms with being gay as a child was pure hell. It was a time that are pretended homosexuality didn’t exist. At least it wasn’t welcomed. A child in this environment is confused, scared and very ‘alone’.”

As a teacher in later life, I could not believe how the social situation has changed. Today gays have clubs, gays are tolerated more and more each day.

Sometimes I just want to replies: ‘you youngsters have it easy compared to the tight atmosphere and lack of acceptance we encountered.’”
