‘Being Gay, Writing Has Helped Me Express Myself’

Gay sexual behaviour is normal, and it has always been for a significant proportion of the male population, and yet it is shrouded in mystery because it isn’t talked about, and when it is, it is usually in terms of it being dirty, degrading, and unnatural. I wanted to put that right.
