I don't think we saw one noticeably gay person from the time we left Melbourne until we returned, except for one and due to a friend, I had some information about this person first. He lives in Broken Hill and is a hot looking guy in his late twenties, but I can't say much more about him as he is easily identifiable. We had not intended meeting him, but just came across him when out for coffee one day and he served us. As I had seen his picture, I knew what he looked like and his gaydar was working just fine.
I have since made email contact with him and he seems like a very nice guy. Love took him to Broken Hill and although the love has gone, he stayed on.
