Boy Seeks Boy

Am I gay? Am I not gay? Was I born gay? Who the fuck really knows? What I do know is what I expressed in my fourth novel, Walt Loves the Bearcat:

"I was born a boy slash man. Later, I came to understand my desire to bond with another boy slash man, but not so that we could become gay men or straight men. The closest anyone else has come to articulating the bond my soul desires is the buddy duo. Starsky and Hutch. Martin and Lewis. Butch and Sundance. My soul craves a buddy, not a lifestyle. Of course, my buddy and I are sexual together, make no mistake. But labels and lifestyles with labels are not part of any dream born within my soul. We make our own lifestyle and rules."
