Was in this newspaper store in Yarmouth getting the weekly paper when my eye caught a copy of Wayves, I took it home and read it. This was in January, 1996 was 40 at the time, never been in a "gay bar' til I came up to Halifax for a weekend in January, 1996 Went to 'stonewall' for lunch then went back that Saturday night, felt like heaven as I was in a place with all gays for the 1st time, dancing and having a good time, Sunday evening I went there for supper, This guy walks in and I couldn't keep my eyes of him, Some how we met had a few drinks and went back to my hotel room, it was love at 1st sight. I returned back to Yarmouth til Good friday Of 1996 and I came out to my family and friends, That was ok, The guy and I became lovers for a year and a half but because of his gambling and being abusive I left but not before I made things worst and that another story, I enjoy the 3 gay bars here in Halifax. glad that I pick up that first copy of Wayves and I thank you all who take the time to put a good newspaper togather.
