I grew up on a farm in Middle Tennessee. Back then I wanted to get as far away from hauling hay, cleaning horse stalls, castrating and de-horning calves as I could. I wanted to be a fag in the big city--Philly, Maputo, Douala, NYC, Cairo, Yaoundé, DC, Dakar, Bangui, Khartoum, Atlanta, Camden, Dar es Salaam, Salvador, Rio, Brooklyn, Lagos, Nairobi, Stonetown, Nashville, Jo'burg, Harare and São Paulo--or wherever.
