I knew right from childhood that I was different and it was the last thing I wanted. When you are an overweight boy, good in school, and a bit on the effeminate side, the last thing you want to do is stand out any more. However, despite my best efforts, stand out I did. It wasn’t enough that I had a last name that was easy to make fun of, I also got branded a “fag” by kids who probably had little idea of what that meant.
