Blurb from Australian TV series Australian Story

What happens when you come out on a national TV reality show in front of more than a million people?

For David Graham, the family fallout from such a public confession has been full of drama.

Destined for a life on the land, he was born and bred to take over the family property in rural Queensland. But a fraught relationship with his father and a desire to explore the rest of the world led David far afield.

By 2006, after a gay bashing, he signed up for Big Brother with the hope that he could raise awareness on gay issues.

The decision took David's family by surprise and left his future as the inheritor of the family farm in doubt.

Four years later, he's attempting to reconcile his sexuality with his desire to be a farmer, a father and a force within the National Party.

Remember upon the conduct of each depends the fate of all. - Alexander the Great

Thanks for this. Living in NZ, I do miss "Australian Story". What a bastard his father was. I do not understand how a gay man can seek a role in the National Party.
