Royston Robinson, London

Over the past 39 years I have been hiding my true identity for I am a Royston. All but a few close family members know me as Roy because of my shame and embarrassment of having a sissy name. Being known as Roy gave me peace. Thank you for showing me that I am not alone. I now realise that if this dog can live with being called Royston then so can I. So look out world, for I am coming out of the closet. My name is Royston and I'm proud of it ...
