There you are....thank goodness!  I can set all the records straight, oh, maybe that isn't the best word to use want to know if I am really truly gay or straight....well.....the answer is a definite....'yes'!  I have been straight - when I was married for over 30 years....and I have been gay....since the day I was I hope that answers your question......


Am I upset?  Definitely and completely!  .It's not that they put this whole thing on page 1 of the local's not that they spelled my name's not even that they outed me in front of all of my friends and family...because at age 79, everyone has known for years that I am gay.....


What is it?  It's that photo!  Why did they have to pick that photo!

           (Turns to leave, stops, looks back)

It's not that I look so gay in that outfit....I am's just that......(sad)  ....Doesn't that photo make me look so....old?

           (He exits to a new life of honesty - thank you, Joel Grey)
