Of course I have known since a long long time that world is full of gay men and women. Of course I have spoken against homophobia on stage. Of course, I have absolutely no problem with anyone being gay. But…
But no, I never had met a gay couple in real. So when I had coffee with them few days back, it was a slightly different experience. I must say it takes time before you get comfortable, especially when one partner’s hand touches the other partner’s cheeks ( even if that’s for a fraction of second and would have gone unnoticed, had you been unaware of the fact that they are a, well…. couple).
In spite of whatever way you might feel the next time you get a chance to meet people who have no problem telling you that they are gay, there is one thing for sure. One look into the guys’ eyes and you will have to say it to yourself: they have the real fucking courage!
PS: Don’t think too much about why I met them or how I met them. If any one of you think that I’m turning into a gay myself, then you would be pleased to know that my girl-friend was with me when we met. Go, brush your teeth.
