If you’re gay and
you really want to show it…
The year was 2006. I was attending junior college
on softball scholarship in a community in the Deep South.
I won’t say where, to avoid stereotyping. I sat in
Ethics class next to one of my teammates, awaiting the day’s
open discussion on the current chapter: “Homosexuality.” It
was a topic I could have argued to a post; one I felt I needed
to say my piece on to defend some of my teammates—including
the one next to me.
