Father's Day

Sunday is Father’s Day. I wish a Fabulous and Joyful Father’s Day to all the Gay Dads and Fathers out there.
Happy Father's DayI also wish a peaceful and enjoyable Father’s Day to:
--Closeted Dads
--“Brokeback” Dads
--Experimenting and/or Questioning Dads
--“Closed Loop Relationship” Dads
--Dads that seek occasional company with other men to get what the wife won’t give
--Dads that are depressed about their sexuality and take it out on their families
--And Dads that pray and meditate that the feelings will go away

Before I was a gay dad, I identified myself as one of the fathers named above at one time or another. I was not a happy dad then. It wasn’t until I came to terms with myself that I was truly gay that I started to feel good about my life. Make no mistake; it wasn’t easy to come out. It meant coming out to family, friends and associates. There was lots of drama and pain about the breakup of the marriage and divorce. There were some financial set backs. Change seemed like a constant. But after a few months I found myself happier than I had ever been. I am now living a new life, one that is more honest and real.
