We are now open, proud individuals (and a proud couple!)

I’m 38 years old and I’ve been with my wife now for over 17 years. We lived in a small town in South Dakota when we first met in 1993. I was 21 and she was 29 with 2 small children. We were in the closet for several years and while nothing bad ever happened […]

I didn’t come out until after I was out of the foster care system

I can remember always know that I was different from everyone else. I was attracted to girls that I was around. I always would dream that I was a boy so that it was alright that I was attracted to them. I grew up in a very small town for a huge part of my […]

There was no one around that I could relate to, no one “like me”

It’s hard for me to write this out, only because I never have before. I’ve known who I was attracted to for as long as I can remember. After falling in love with my 1st grade teacher…at the time I didn’t know what it was and I just figured everyone else felt the same way […]

Know you are not alone and you are loved

I spent most of my young life in the closet. When I finally did come out I was told by my father that he would rather I was dead. Threatened and abused as a child that if I were to come out I would be killed by my father I was rather afraid to live […]

I thought I was the only person like me

I’ve known that I was different since I was a child. I thought I was the only person like me until I was in high school and I met my first partner. We were together for 11 years until his suicide on May 28, 1990. I was devastated but somehow I pulled myself together and […]

We had to sneak around and meet up secretly

I am 17 years old and I live with my father and my step-mom who are both atheist and super supportive of my lifestyle. It was not until last summer that I realized I was a lesbian; I just thought I was bisexual but I spent time with my mother, who left my father for […]

How could someone who didn’t know me hurt me with words?

I was very fortunate to grow up in an area where I didn’t have a lot of problems. I was stronger than most emotionally so when there was ridicule I more felt sorry for that person. I always felt if they didn’t know me they couldn’t know what they were talking about. How could someone […]

Suicides are really a “Hate Crime”

I am former Navy, have many LGBT family members and even more LGBT friends. It pains me that young people of any sexual identity kill themselves, but particularly if they have been bullied into doing so. Chely Wright said it best when she said such suicides are really a “Hate Crime” – because they are. […]

My husband has no idea I am attracted to a woman

I hesitate to share because I have no answers…but I suppose I am not alone in that. I am beginning to realize that I am not straight. What that means and where it takes me is yet to be seen. I am a married 40ish woman. I am very attracted to an unattainable woman who […]

I didn’t realize I was bisexual until high school

I didn’t realize I was bisexual until high school. I came out to all my friends (who were all pretty supportive, some didn’t like it, but that was their problem), but I couldn’t tell my family. They are devoted Baptists who have really strong beliefs on the subject. I did end up telling my mom […]
