Ran across this article and I almost cried, considering the closet in which I lived 40 years ago. The stigma of possibly being labeled a "homo" was one of the reasons my high school guidance counselor perp was able to get away with abusing boys. ....
If you go back into the '60s, when I was called a faggot I thought it had some ulterior meaning. Because faggots needed to be long haired anti war protesters and while I had long hair I didn't protest anything. So I thought those guys were just trying to insult me.
And in the '60s a young kid like me was able to get into magazines, OK it wasn't Life or Time but rather boy magazines. But hey, they were also legally sold on newsstands in NYC.
These 2 guys make a nice couple but I think they should change their doo's. They would both look better in ponytails.Peace, Rainbows, Love & Healing<3 XOXOJeff
