He told Attitude: ‘For my whole life. You know, my religious family, God bless them, sent me to a psychologist when I was five years old because I was too much of a sissy. 

‘The only thing I know is shame. So, to have that lifted, and to be free from shame, it’s mind-boggling. For the first time, I’m learning how to live for myself.’

On moving to New York in 1991 in the midst of the AIDS crisis, he added: ‘The only thing we knew was sex equalled death. So, good luck. Horrible. And it’s only now that I’m in a space where I can actually process what we’ve been through. 

‘It’s, like, oh, we went through some shit, and I’ve been traumatised. It took a minute for me to understand that.’
