JOSE

 

In some ways it doesn’t mean anything, you’re human but then on the other hand it's been foundational to my life. My whole relationship with my family, the crisis that I had, seeing so many of my friends die in the 80s. If I weren’t gay I wouldn’t have had those experiences.

There where many hardships involved with that, then there’s also fantastic things. To be young and gay is to be young and beautiful. It’s a passport into other worlds and other areas. I had the possibility of having a much more interesting life than I would have had I not been gay. I think for me it has been everything; it was something that radically altered my life.
