Uncle Chris and my Mother’s Gold Glitter Pumps
I knew I was gay when at 12 years old I wanted to emulate the coolest guy that I knew, he was my Gay Uncle Chris, he lived life, loved life, loved music, loved being around us kids. And loved men. He was the life of the party and I wanted to be just like him. He was a man’s man that was masculine, feminine and yet masculine in one cool dude. Then one day I discovered my Mothers Gold Glitter Pumps, I didn’t want to wear them, I just wanted to stare at them for hours. Today as a gay man I’ve carried on Uncle Chris’s legacy of being the life of any situation and yes, today I own my own pair of Stilettos that I do wear on occasion when I want to feel extremely masculine and feminine yet totally masculine.
