Unlike Fausto, I was not fortunate enough to grow up in Austin. Instead, I spent my formative years enduring Arlington, a small city between Dallas/Ft. Worth. The street I lived on literally had 8 churches within a 3 block radius, a conferdate flag flew at the end of the block, and I learned about gaydom from IRC chat. My first homo experience was a 3-way (yikes!), and I had the biggest crush on my mentor.
I ran away from home after high school and ended up in the sanctuary of the Bay Area. I have lived, loved and lost in this City, and I would not have had it any other way.
Currently surviving the idiocy that is Las Vegas, but working towards starting over in NYC.
