What Else She Said

My father is a gay man and through the eighties he watched many (and we all watched many) of our friends die of AIDS. I think the kind of political activism that came out around that time really impacted me. I think being gay in this society is by its nature, political, so having a gay dad made me a sort of fighter for his rights very early on.
