Of course, straight people were everywhere, but when they were on TV, they weren't real to me, and when they were my friends' parents, they weren't sexy to me. Young English teachers and comedy actors in movies, however, seemed both real and sexy to me.

Summer, with its heat and sweat and skin-baring clothing options, is a great time to have a crush. I haven't had a serious, hardcore, I'm-so-excited-I-can-barely-breathe-around-this-person crush in a long time, and I'm due for one this season.

There's nothing more humbling than finding you're living out a big flaming cliché, although it (of course) feels like you are the first person to have this experience in all of history. Five years ago, my coming-out cliché hit me like a ton of rubyfruit. I fell in love with my lady therapist.

That's the Davy Jones I've taken with me these years since that show -- a complete and total gentleman. His grace, his "heartthrob-ness" was so absolute that it broke all age barriers -- it didn't matter how old he was, how old his audience was -- he was a beautiful man, inside and out.
