Support for gay athletes is at an all time high. I've been getting questions about why I haven't talked about the NHL and Brendan Burke "You can Play" program. Why I haven't talked about the "It Gets Better" videos that numerous baseball teams and colleges have created.
I'm not much of a news site and guess that I should have posted my feelings about how monumental this past year has been. I don't see myself as much of an activist. Am I a role model? I guess. Do I want to be a poster boy for gay athletes professional and amateur? No.
Most of this site contains stories about my sexual past, nearly naked men and ramblings of a young, immature baseball player coming to terms with his sexuality. It's my digital journal is growing up and realizing that I am not alone in the world and that I am not the first person to ever deal with these feelings and these problems.
I've had a chance to talk with many other athletes out there who have shared stories of their own. Asked for advice when clearly I was not one to give advice to them because I had my own problems I was dealing with. Who was I to dispense advice?
I'm older, wiser and feel like now I am in a place where I can give out advice from my past experiences and truly know what it's like to come full circle from a scared teenager to a boring adult with an amazing partner that I used to only dream of.
So what is going on with Reid and I? We are a fucking boring couple. Honestly. I have been traveling a lot and over the last week I have finally been able to settle down and enjoy 10 un-interupted days with Reid.
That's rare and I have enjoyed every single day I've had with him. I know that this bliss really pisses a lot of you off because you want to hear about all of the crazy, raunchy and dirty sex we have while wearing jock straps, baseball gear, etc... but it's kinda different. Maybe it's because I'm in love with the guy? I don't know.
I do have a story of a dude I have been chatting with for almost a year who is an athlete at a pretty big university and dated a baseball player. Writing it up for all of you so you can at least get some juicy stories from someone.
