Years ago, I left Habersham County ... to try to fix something!

Years ago, 1979, I left Habersham County, Georgia.  One purpose for that was to try to fix something.  I did not want my family to suffer embarrassment about my "gay demon."  After all, my parents were there to retire and live out the rest of their lives.  I had not yet started using words like "gay," "queer," "homosexual" to refer to myself.  But, I was well aware of my dreams -- dreams that I'd been having since I was ten.  I enrolled as a Bible major at Lee College (Church of God) in Cleveland, Tennessee.  There! That should help me keep quiet, help me keep myself under control, and try to fix things!
