This is something I’ve always thought, but not being an expert (being straight myself), I’ve never felt myself really able to comment. So it is very interesting to read it from someone such as John Barrowman, who knows what he’s talking about.
I was born gay. It’s not a choice I – or anyone else who is gay – made. If it were, why on earth would anyone choose to be part of a minority, part of a group that in so many cultures and countries, even in the twenty-first century, is regularly blasphemed, hounded and worse?
