One of the more unfortunate parts of being as far in the closet as I was most of my life, is that I have always been afraid to interact with any part of the trans or gay communities. Well this year I’m at least poking my head out of the dirt far enough to attend a gay pride parade.
Much like how I had an irrational fear of ever seeming feminine. I also was afraid to be seen even endorsing Pride lest someone figure me out.
So this year is my first time stepping out and at least participate silently while far braver people march.
Someday I’ll step into the limelight with confidence, just not this year. I’m still going to count the win though, better there then not right?
