Walter came out late in life and once he did, he immediately set out to help others escape the closet. He wrote his coming out story for the Los Angeles Times and got a huge response from around the world from others suffering with the same difficulties he had faced.
When his novel “Rounding Third” was published, detailing the bullying of two gay teens (based in part on his own high school experiences, he began getting requests to speak and write about the timely topic. He has been a guest on NPR and other radio and television shows. He has spoken at Penn State, San Diego State, Arizona State, SUNY-Jamestown, LGBT centers, libraries, bookstores and high schools. Among his many activities, he has led discussions following presentations of movies, documentaries, stage plays, and interpretive dance about bullying.
