    I am a dad that has sexual attractions to men.

    Well... actually I am a grandfather now. I don't call myself gay because that implies that I am happy or content to be what I am. I am not. But this is about being a "gay" dad. My kids, son, 29 and daughter, 23 have known about my being attracted to men at almost the same time...
