Didn’t See That One Coming

The times they are a-changin’.

This post seems to be older than 19 years—a long time on the internet. It might be outdated.

There really is no point in beating around the bush on this one, so I’m just going to say it. Jeff Hanway just told me he was gay. There. I said it.

Jeff is, has been, and always will be an awesome friend. I’ve never been in a situation like this before, so for the most part, I’m rather stunned. I can honestly say I had no reason, what so ever. I think the oddest thing is there are people I know who are homosexual and there are people I know who have delt with someone they know being homosexual (usually a family member). They’ve blogged about it, I’ve read it, and that’s that. But now to be on the other side. It’s very surreal.

Having said that. Jeff is an awesome guy. We went to high school together, are in the same Bible Study, and have shared many a laughs and what not. For all intensive purposes, he is my brother and one of the few people I will trust with my life.

JHan has known he was officially gay since freshman year of HS, or there abouts. He even had a few boyfriends, which no one knew about (thus now earning Fergs "Super Sneaky Award").

I like to think that I notice quite a bit. In retrospect, I suppose there might have been a few tip-offs. But nothing conclusive.

Perhaps the most ironic thing about this whole bit is that theBS discused homosexuality on many occations.

I’m really not sure where I’m trying to go with this. I have a lot flowing through my head right now and I really just want to get it out.
