Tim Robards was probably about the first conscious ping on my radar of Aussiebum. Tim was one of the early stars of their advertising. I say that like it was a million years ago but they’ve only been around since around 2000/2001. From memory I think I’ve also heard that Tim is a Wollongong boy like me. If I’d run into boys like this around “The Gong” more often, rather than the neanderthal thugs that went to my school, I would have realised my sexuality a bit earlier. Instead I waited til I was safely nestled in the bosom of homo-friendly Sydney.
