Where Oh Where Would I Be? -- reflecting about Ladson, South Carolina
I don't know where I'd be if I had felt safe and secure enough to have COME OUT (as a young boy of 12, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 years old) way back when I lived in Ladson, South Carolina. That place, along with Goose Creek, was a hell of it own to endure! That was way back in 1967-1972. I had not used terms like "gay," "queer," "homosexual," in reference to myself. I didn't even know what such terms meant. I did know about my dreams! Yea, I did! I kept them to myself!
