It was exciting, it was romantic, most importantly it was outside of the fucking law at the time. I began to feel a sense of my own liberation and freedom. It felt great; I was engaged in criminal, outsider and kind of more anarchistic activity with my boyfriend. I was 18 years old and underage at the time in 1974. I was engaged in illicit homosexual activity.


I’m a queer male disguised in a masculine cloak. I enjoy the more femine and sensitive side of my learnt masculinity, its kinder and its much much more fun for me than all that serious self managed masculine bullshit.
