Perfect happiness would be knowing that all my family and friends were happy and safe.

Good food and dancing would be nice, too, and weekly visits from those safe and happy family and friends. Plus world peace.
No mother wants to hear her son say he's gay. Those two words rip the picture of a daughter-in-law and grandchildren into pieces.

It took a while for people to realize I was acting.
