Joseph Rocha: Being Gay In They Navy Was Fine, Except For The Not Being Able To Say ‘I’m Gay’ Part

Joseph Rocha, the gay discharged Navy vet abused by his superiors (and forced to simulate oral sex) in Bahrain, is among the discharged vets who tried re-enlisting following Judge Virginia Phillips’ DADT ruling — but thanks to his use of anti-depressants (following his torment), and the Ninth Circuit issuing a temporary injunction of Phillips’ ruling, he won’t be suiting up anytime soon.

Says Rocha of his service under DADT: “I had no problems getting along with anyone … it was only when I was backed into a corner into these questions of, ‘Are you gay because of this? Are you gay because you don’t do that?,’ and the inability of saying yes I am, leave me alone.”

      I know I should watch this guy for the substance of his soul and the passion of his convictions. But damn he is hot. OK, I feel better now getting that off my chest.

      @Berto Lozano: It’s not your fault. You’re just a Sex Obsessed Homo who base your alliance to a cause or person on superficial, vapid templates. You’re no different than 97% of Gays who do the same shit.

      One of the many reasons why Gay Men are so damn miserable with themselves and the world.. Now go ahead and catch that new episode of A-List on Logo.

      *rolls eyes*

      Yes, it is. No, I don’t. Yes, I am. Not true. Hate that show. Get an eye exam.
