But Gay Girl freaks out, accuses Ex-Straighty of still being straight and goes as far as to accuse her of being in a “phase.” So in a lame attempt to save herself some heartache, Miss Lezzy up and leaves Ex-Straighty high and dry!

And for half of the gay men on campus, I was something of a goddess, an inspiration, a friend. I was flamboyant gay kid who made everyone else look bad by association.
