Being gay in 2011 is harder than being gay in the 70s

“One of the advantages I enjoyed at school 30 years ago that you could fly under the radar.

“I was a weird kid with no interest in girls, I liked musicals and I liked to bake and I like to read and people did not automatically assume I was gay.

“Nowadays, there’s an awareness… that an interest in musicals, an interest in baking and a disinterest in girls if you’re a boy – case closed, you’re a fag.”
