15. I know what you mean,
but it's just the way I am - my whole life (more or less) centers on my gayness because it's essentially who I am and what is important to me. I understand that others have richer inner lives, and I do try to develop myself, but I really enjoy being gay and being surrounded by other gay men. While mixing with heteros can be healthy for purposes of public relations as well as giving gays a wider repertoire of experiences from which to draw, I often simply get a headache within the first ten minutes of entering a non-gay place. I just don't closet myself and my interests at all - not even a tiny little bit. Which doesn't mean I'm a screaming queen, but I just do what comes naturally to me, without masking it - like if I see a man I like, I enjoy admiring his body. This often leads to long, hostile stares and glares in return.
