During these posts about my past and struggle with coming out, I wanted to remain open and share from the deepest place of williness to effect change.
remaining open and sharing is part of healing.
I am open because that is what is needed to help heal the split between equality and tolerance. Tolerance to me just gives other people justification to quietly believe Gay people have a choice while equality lets them know we were born this way.
I was born this way, my first crushes were girls, but at the time I did not understand what that meant.
I want a life that is open, where I don’t have to hide any aspect of my life. When I have to hold back a part of myself and use pronouns to describe my significant other it feels dishonest.
There is a feeling of not being fully present, when I hold back a part of myself.
