Stuart’s Coming Out Story

KaleidoScot’s Stuart Duffy shares his Coming Out Story: “I gradually creaked open the closet door on my sexuality, letting some close friends know in my mid-20’s before I finally told my family when I was 32. I guess I was most scared about telling my Dad as we didn’t have the best relationship when I was young, but he was totally fine about it and even went to a gig with my boyfriend a few weeks later!

“I couldn’t imagine coming out at school in the 90’s, I don’t feel it was an inclusive place to be different at all, although my closest school friends have always accepted who I am. My biggest regret is I didn’t get to tell my mum before she died in 2001, although they say mums always know their sons.”
