Micah, age 8
Honolulu, HI (1984)

"Go Dodgers! Hayyyyy!"

This was taken visiting my grandparents in Honolulu. I was a shy kid, and my mom said I was "gifted."

It turns out the main gifts were decorating, cooking, and being fabulous on trips.

I always felt different, but didn't realize I was gay until I was a freshman in college.

Literally, one morning I woke up and it hit me: I was gay.
After that everything finally made sense.

Looking back at this pic, it makes me think: Damn I was a cute kid! :-)
But I don't think I could get my wrist to do that these days. 

Micah's first, famous-person same sex crushes:
Luke Perry & Jason Priestly ("Beverly Hills 90210")
