There seem to be certain gay men who like to be flamboyant and loud, and think that gives them the green light to be over familiar with women, and grab and touch them inappropriately, pretending to be friendly and helpful. John Barrowman also falls into this category. They seem to think this makes them look funny and clever. Please don’t think I’m having a pop at gay men. As a retired hairdresser, I’ve worked with gay men for years and have many gay friends who I love dearly and socialise with regularly.
