I found some giant shoulders to stand on.”



The EM weekend gave me the confidence to express the whole range of emotions as a man and no longer be restricted to the streotype of a Kiwi male. I saw that it is OK for a man to be loving, nurturing and caring to others in his life, and that I am not alone in life's journey.'
