Out At Work

Its official! I am out at work now. Everybody got to talking about their personal lives during some down time on the ship and to make a long story short, I revealed I was gay. Some of my close friends on the ship already knew, others didn't and one lady was rather shocked at the news. She insisted I couldn't be gay. Eventually she came round to realize I wasn't jest joking and it was good to know I debunked another persons stereotype of a gay man.
When we spent a night in Spain, we had a nice dinner and lots of drinking and having a good time. She started to ask me many questions about gay sex between men. I was saved from answering most by the other crew who I think noticed my embrassment at her curiosity. The crew have been great. They've not treated me any different and my one friend Chris who is straight, shared a room with me that night and did not have a problem changing clothes in front of me or being himself. In fact, I think I saw more of his naked ass after he heard I was gay, then before.

It helps for people to accept you when they know you can beat the crap out of them. hehe
