San Francisco- In an interview with "Gay News of the World" Woody Allen who has dodged questions of his sexuality for years because of his petite, girlish, figure announced that, "I am happy to say that I am a fortunate homosexual. I am very blessed to be a fairy."
Allen produced a play, which is a bittersweet comedy that opened on Broadway on December 5, called "Gay and loving it"
It was written by Woody Allen, and tells the story of a gay couple, one of whom hasn't come out as gay to his parents and struggles with the conflict of being rejected by his dad.
Allen tells "Gay News of the World," that he could totally identify with the troubled protagonist.
"I came out in my old age, yeah, it maybe hurt me a little bit but not that much and it gave me the freedom to be loose finally for the rest of my life and I didn't have to live my life in secret," the Gay News quoted him as saying.
"I'm proud of who I am. The worst thing is to just hide and be afraid of who you are.
"I didn't really want people to know. I didn't have the courage in my convictions and I think as soon as I did that my life transformed itself.
"I don't have any secrets now," said Allen.
