I just did an AMAZING interview with Ian Duncan, owner of Video Boys and Squirtz in Montreal. He is one of the sweetest and most genuine people I have ever spoken to. We have so many friends in common that I wonder how it is that we have never met or spoken before last night. It's a pretty long interview but so worth it. It really devolved from an interview into a great conversation. Before either of us knew it we had been on the phone for almost two hours.

Ian had a very troubling childhood but overcame his adversity and started his Video Boys when he was just 18, when the Internet was still new to most of the world. Now at 33 Ian is still going strong. He's very open about his life and has admitted that talking about his past has helped his deal with it and come through it a better person. I had a tremendous amount of respect for Ian based on what I had heard from Pierre Fitch, Jeremy Feist and Jeremy Roddick, but after speaking to him I now have an even deeper respect for him.

The interview should be up by Friday on www.gaystarinterviews.com. In the meantime please follow Ian on Twitter at www.twitter.com/iantylerduncan.
