On the road to coming out my first year in college I met Christopher. He was a friend of my best friend Nina and it was Nina that introduced us. Introduced is probably a bit of a misnomer. I had met Christopher briefly and seen him in group settings and he struck me as odd and a bit weird. I did not want to have much to do with Christopher. But, as happens, my ego got in the way. Nina came to me and said, “Christopher’s a virgin. He really likes you and wants to sleep with you.” Well, whose ego could turn down that kind of proposal at 18 years old? Soon after that Christopher and I had sex for the first time.
