Its that time of year again when one of my favourite days has come upon us. I remember when I was growing up and I was in so much denial about being gay and that caused me to leave soccer because I was afraid of being judged, to drink excessively to repress feelings and even to become closed off to those closest to me. I must say though, over the last couple of months with Ireland gaining marriage equality by popular vote and now America legalizing gay marriage in all states, has made me very proud to be gay. #LoveWins is well and truly the hashtag of the year. Happy frickin' Gay Pride everyone!!
