Tim Dunn on Being a Proud Gay Man!

Tim Dunn, who lives in London with his boyfriend, has a clear message: embrace your inner nerd and don’t let other people’s opinions derail you. In a previous reflection, he discussed the importance of following your passions. He explained that if you have the freedom to live as a proud gay man in a society that is frequently oppressive, you shouldn’t be afraid to shout about the things that make you happy.

Talking about the time he first came out as gay, he explained,

[The first person I came out to] was my best friend Chris, when I was about 18…..Nobody seemed that surprised anyway, apart from my father, who reckoned if one of his sons was gay, it probably wasn’t the one who spent all his time building railway engines. But then, preconceptions and worn-out stereotypes are always the most fun ones to break.

Tim said he used to feel just as self-conscious as he does now about being gay growing up because of how others regarded him as a geek. He added,

I used to dread what other people thought of me and my supremely nerdy passions. In fact, as a student, I bought both Attitude and Steam Railway magazine: I wasn’t sure which I should hide inside the other! But, at about 21, I discovered that by being enthusiastic, compelling and passionate, you might just get people aboard and take them with you……My motto in life is ‘Be an enthusiast’. You’ll probably get more out of life if you approach things keenly.
