I fight because…

I fight because (a) I’ve never been happier than with my partner of 10 years, hoping to make it a lifetime; (b) I spent almost 37 years in the closet before I told my family and friends I’d found the man that I love more than anything or anyone on the planet, 10 years ago; (c) there weren’t guys like Hudson in my Oklahoma high school or college, which I regret — if I hadn’t had to be closeted to them and even myself then, I might have pursued sports more aggressively, and maybe been pretty good, rather than avoid it for being labeled a “fag” – it wasn’t until I was older I learned how much I appreciated football and especially baseball — and not for stupid gay stereotype reasons, I probably should add, but because the strategies and tactics/skills still intrigue me and keep me a fan!
