Alex Parks’ Coming Out Left Male Schoolmates Gutted

Alex Parks tells The Glasgow Daily Record the boys at her school were devastated when she revealed she was a lesbian five years ago. “Before I came out I had loads of boyfriends,” she said. “In fact, I had more boyfriends than girlfriends. When boys hit on me at school it was a compliment. I broke a few boys hearts when I came out. One boy I was fond of was a bit gutted, but he was really supportive. He respected me for making the decision.”
