Hello World! I'm Rob, I have had a pretty cruzy life so far. I realised I was Homo when I was about 14 my dad new when I was two, he new unlike his other 5 sons I was different but never treated different and loved unconditionally. My mum's a bit different, she's a homophobe, racist, narrowed minded, Christian Alcoholic it's taken decades of hard work to understand her but I love her none the less. I live in an awesome party of the world, it's subtropical rural 20mins to the coast and has the largest Gay and Lesbian community out side Sydney, so it's easy to connect with like minded people and it's called the rainbow region.
