Is it an allegory??

Such a lot we didn't know about HCA when we we in Copenhagen with Mark and Stacey

And finally The Ugly Duckling was an allegory for growing up gay??

We learned a lot about Hans ChristianAndersen last night and thought it was worth sharing.

Did you know that HCA:

was a vegetarian

Suffered from acrophobia

Stayed so long with his "friend" Charles Dickens and his family that Charles asked him to leave

Was gay

lived ( and died) with his long time lover and his wife. The 3 of the were buried together - later HCA as exhumed and moved to a grave on his own
