Boy Culture: Why Coming Out Is Only Half The Battle

Posted May 30, 2012 by Elie

Too skinny for the gym rats, too hairy for the twinks, and too foreign for just about everyone else; my first experiences in Montreal’s gay village ended up being more intimidating than growing up in the aggressively ignorant environment I did in the Middle East.
