A Boy’s Own Story, Part I.
Edmund White talks to Michael Langan about the thirtieth anniversary of A Boy’s Own Story, and how men and women have to learn to be gay. Part I of II.
“I felt, like most other gay people at the time, that we became gay not because some attractive older person showed us the way but in spite of all the horrible examples of gay lives that we encountered as children. Despite all that you still have a drive to become gay and it might be painful experience but people aren’t put off.”
