A Few Gay (And Not So Gay) Notes

I was going to blog about BBC Three's documentary on the young lad who "woke up gay" after a stroke. Unfortunately, I missed the first twenty minutes or so but what I did see left me feeling very sceptical. It focussed far more on the change from beer-swilling, rugby playing, hyper macho guy who seemed to mistake sex with relationships into a equally stereotypical camp gay hairdresser. It was the swing from one stereotype tyo the other which seemed much more pronounced than his underlying sexuality - indeed very few people accepted his belief that he was straight before the stroke.
