This is a story told to me by a gay crew. We had coffee during one of our night stops in Copenhagen,in my hotel room with nothing much to do because it was snowing outside. The temperature outside the hotel was about -5C and with that kind of weather,it was best we stay indoor,watching TV or sleeping ( by yourself or better still with a nice looking Danish girl or a stewardess..hahaha)or chit chatting with your friends or colleagues. Well,it was not that I had much of a choice except that Danny my in flight supervisor had invited himself to my room for a chat.
I didn't regret having Dan in my room because I later on had the opportunity to listen to his story about how he was 'converted' to being a gay. It was some sort of confession by him and from the time he started the revelation and to the end,I could see his eyes beaming with pride. He told me he was proud to be a gay and never regretted for a moment.
As I sat on my chair sipping my coffee, Dan began confiding in me how he was a normal guy when he first joined the airlines. He was just like most of the male crew looking for pretty and available stewardesses and female passengers to "bed" with. In fact,he had a 'regular' girlfriend in Bangkok,where the crew night stopped and would shower her with money and gifts whenever he visited her. In fact,Dan had planned to marry her.
It was during one of the London night stops when Dan invited a Caucasian male passenger,Tony, whom he had befriended on his flight.
Tony was a young handsome guy with sparkling blue eyes.He was nice and polite with the crew serving him on his flight and had won the praises and hearts of the stewardesses. One of the stewardesses had confided in Dan she would not mind having a date with Tony but Tony did not pay much attention to her. Instead,Tony was most of the time chatting with Dan whenever Dan could spare the time.
During this stop in London,Tony paid Dan a visit in his hotel room. They went out to the pubs had a few stout and beer and later after dinner adjourned to a show at Piccadilly. In a matter of a few hours,they seemed to get to know each other better than before. In the aircraft,it was more difficult to chat freely.
By midnight,Dan and Tony were back in the hotel room. Dan invited Tony to spend the night in his room since it was late for Tony to travel home.
Before Dan could even changed into his pajamas,the impatient Tony caught hold of Dan and kissed him on his mouth.
Dan confided in me,that the kiss from Tony gave him a wonderful sensation that was different from the one he got from his Thai girlfriend. It was indescribable but sexually beyond words,he told me in the Copenhagen hotel room.
From that day onwards,he never look back and never regret for one moment he was a gay.
Dan was with Tony for a while and then changed partner after a few months. Dan later on was involved with another Caucasian guy by the name of Ted. All along,Dan had only Caucasian boy friends.
A few years later,on the persistent nagging from his mother, Dan was matched make to a woman who he later divorced after the death of his parents. He has a daughter who is now in her teens and living with her Mom.
During his married life,he had affair with men too.
Today, Dan is in his fifties and due for his retirement soon.
The thing that shocked me in my Copenhagen hotel room that day was when Dan confessed to me he had an 'eye' for me and he wished I would have been his boyfriend.However,that was many years ago but I told him that it was wishful thinking for I am happy for being what I am.
