tough times

I am now the proud "parent" of two queer kids! The Italian boy who became our "son" for 5 months in 2000 has announced to us that he is gay. I am very pleased for him, that he now feels self-confident enough to be able to come out. That must be a wonderfully liberating experience!

...but on the other hand, I can't help but feel a certain amount of apprehension and concern for him in terms of the extra life-difficulties that this situation will involve. For example, I just can't imagine him fitting in to the gay male scene that I see in Sydney...but I guess the reality is that I know bugger all about what it's like to be gay. Nonetheless, it's probably not unreasonable to assume that it's tough at times.
