my day it was only OK to be gay, now its ok but I still live privateley only as its no one elses buisness but mine and waving flags is not something i like doing as I am secure in myself now.
One of my friends John was killed in London for being gay, he was chased off the train and they ran him up the main street, a long street and beat him to death, it was a point in my life I realised the hatred toward us, I somehow was naive to it before that day.
he was not a queen or obvious he was making a private call to his boyfriend, and being john I can imagine it was not to explicit, prob I will be home at 7 darling have dinner on..but would mention Dave's name, they must have been listening to the call, what a awful way to go for such a wonderful man, Dave still has no partner and never will, I miss John greatly, he was one in a million for sure, he helped me through so much, gave me shelter from abuse, helped me find my home, fed me when I was hungry, you don't meet people like him in every day life and they took that man away from us all.
That`s terrible story and I`m really sorry for your friend. Being killed cause he loved another man is just crazy. Makes me think how terrible this world really is. We can only wish people would judge others by their personality and not by how they look like or who they love. It makes me sick.
