It was a nasty divorce. Ernesto has found himself trapped in a loveless marriage, with two children he adored, a faithless wife, and the growing realization that he could no longer deny his desire toward men.
He was surprised when Gloria asked for the divorce, but grateful. He was surprised because he didn’t know of her infidelity, and he had fought to remain true to their vows, mostly successfully. Grateful, because they had grown apart. Ernesto agreed to all of Glorias terms, asking only that he have free access to their children, and she agreed.
Because of the stress he was under, Ernesto lost his job and could no longer afford his apartment. He had become homeless; his new address was a post office box. He had no birth family to help him. His last surviving relative, a sister, had died just weeks before.
He crashed with friends, hoping to find work and a new place of his own.
It was all manageable, though. He still had his children.
One day he went by the children’s school, just to say Hi, like he had done several times before with no problem. He barely avoided arrest, fleeing just before the police arrived.
It seems that, without warning Ernesto, Gloria had instructed the school authorities to call the police if Ernesto came onto the school grounds.
It was the last straw for ‘Nesto.
Only one thought filled his mind. Tucson had become a place of bitterness, pain and betrayal. He was getting the hell out of town, as fast as he could.
But before he could do that, he needed to talk to somebody, anybody. He just had to unburden himself of the emotional burden he was bearing.
That’s when Ernesto e mailed me.
Latino Men…

Be loved,
