What ever happen to the phrase “live and let live” or my favorite “what does it matter their not peeing in your back yard.” Sometimes it is hard to fathom that those two statements about tolerance ever existed.
It is my fervent belief that, we go through situations in our lives that prompt and challenge us to grow and change, then we take that knowledge and help others; becoming a light of hope, a word of encouragement and an example, that it does get better.
I was straddling both sides of the fence, seeing a man by day and sneaking out to the lesbian bar at night. I had to find out for myself just what I was becoming, have one experience that would prove to me one way or another just what was happening to me.
Then from behind I heard a voice say "so, whats your name."
That one night stand, turned into a hot affair.
Oh yeah! I was gay and there was no going back.
