What Limits Pete From Choosing His Partner?
Pete has always been open about being gay and supported homosexual. He does not buzz about being gay on the radio, but the whole Liverpool knows it.
He identified himself as gay at the young age of 12 but when his mother saw a love letter from a boy he was immediately sent to a mental hospital. In the hospital, he had to go through “aversion therapy” where he was shown pictures of naked men and was injected with an emetic. The therapy was terrifying, and he ended up vomiting and defecating in his bed. When it was too much, he decided to leave the place and be who he is. Since then he never changed his identity.
The event in the past helped him maintain his identity, but it also stopped him from choosing his partner in life. He says he is gay but won't have any partner because he does not want others to go through the same pain as he did in his childhood.
