I recently attended a government-related healthcare function where I was confronted with an award-winning company owner who
The 'supposed' assumed lifestyle of being gay is all, I admit, just a bit alienating to me. It always has been. I've felt in the past like I've been pushed into a group or associated with particular labels for no particular reason.
