I haven't cried since starting Boarding School five years ago. Crying would be a weakness that would instantly destroy you in such a heavily masculin enviroment. At Swim Two Boys broke the dam within me. My tears were probably more for the love I feel and cannot express.

I had to remove the book of its cover in order to read it. Perhaps the most pathetic act I have ever degraded myself too. Disembowling an object of beauty in order to save my own skin. So sad.

It seems there are beacons of hope it seems, only that we must reach out to them.

Thankyou. I had to communicate this somewhere, I am sorry for your time.

You’re truly brave. Crying is not a weakness - it shows that you are not afraid to express your feelings – even feelings of vulnerability. The whole scene at most schools is created by the kids who are most messed up trying to hide it by acting tough.

Hang in there – life does get better, especially once you finish school – if you are brave enough to be who and what you want to be. And there are enough of us out there to help each other make it. Remember – you’ll never walk alone!

Don’t feel guilty about having to take At Swim out of its cover. You’re not abandoning your principles by doing that. And yeah, it is an amazing book – it’s one of those books that give us clues as to how to live our lives, especially if you’re gay – it’s a book about learning to be brave (and many other things besides).
