Gays of my life.
When asked to describe myself by someone on twitter this week I went with 30% Punky Brewster, 20% Dame Edna, 15% CC Bloom, 5% Orphan Annie and the rest a mix of anxiety, vodka and glitter.
I am camp as tits. There is no denying it. My 6 best friends in the whole world are gay men. For those of you who follow me on twitter you will be WELL aware of this. These boys have been with me a very long time, I would lay down and die for them. Between them- a writer, director/model, fashion designer, make-up artist, jewelry designer and University lecturer. I thought perhaps you'd all like to meet the men in my life, it may start to read like an intro for perfect match however that's perfect in itself - considering the subject matter.
Let's meet them, I am going to go in order of appearance in my life..
Michael - Friends since 1991
I met Michael in year 7, we attended the same high school and were thrust together because our Mothers shared a work place. We had somewhat of an under-cover friendship, me being the jock him being the theater nerd. I didn't see him for 10 years after I left school and then he re-appeared in my life 3 years ago, ironically when he was grappling with his sexuality. He came out, he went back in and then he came back out again.(Note to reader:It would appear that I am some sort of oracle for young men who are straddling the lines of homo land and hetero ville.) Michael is my moral compass, he is also the smartest person I know. He is the one I call in my darkest hours. He is a very talented writer and has his 1st feature film coming out next year. Michael has an understanding of Disney Musicals akin to none. His 4 main fears in life are; environmental catastrophe, fundamentalism, snake bites and getting fat.
