Wyatt: I’m a little taken a back, out of breath reading this. I’ve heard so many pieces of these stories and insights but never read your writing on these experiences. I feel so honored to know you and to read this and to reflect on the many ways your words and reflections have often reminded me that I am a human whose life is worth living without shame or guilt or repressing my desires or gut impulses. I’d say I’m so proud of you for writing this, and I claim “pride” not to seem condescending nor in the vein of, well, gay pride : ), but simply from the pleasure in witnessing a comrade and friend so powerfully and beautifully claiming his reality! And, thank you for that!
