I’ve never been entirely comfortable with my own sexuality. I spent decades dodging even the thought of a homosexuality I had learned to loathe. Now, after reading Derek Jarman, Tony Kushner, Levay’s The Sexual Brain, and much more, after the introspection this writing facilitates, I am less fearful. I am, quite simply (quite complicatedly), heterosexual. Biology and cultural conditioning have forged that sexual identity. As they did John’s.
