    My "home" town is to small for anything like that.

    But i was born in Jonesboro, Arkansas.

    And Clint Catalyst was also born there.

    He's not all that famous but hes pretty well known in the LGBT community, and has a sort of cult following when it comes to his written work (which is absolutely wonderful).
