People thought it was okay to judge and harass me

I’m 19 years old. I’m gay. In junior high, I barely knew who I was, but people who had even less of an idea of who I was than I did thought it was okay to judge and harass me. It got better. It got better because my friends were there for me. It gets […]

I worry that my children will not understand

For most of my 43 years, I have been acutely aware of the fact that I am a lesbian. However, like many of us, I have done everything to hide that from the world. In fact, to the “world” I am a successful, happily married Christian woman and a mother of 3 beautiful ‘young adults’. […]

There are lots of supportive adults. Talk with someone

My personal journey is still filled with a million questions

I’m 22 yrs old and from Europe. I grew up surrounded by understanding, open minded and liberal people. When I read stories about people who are not accepted by their families/friends because of their sexuality, who struggle to come to term with themselves because of their religion, who live in fear, I’m almost scared they […]

Growing Up in Smalltown Alabama

Although a bit more progressive by comparison with other small towns in my state — due in great part to the university community – it was a tough place for a young lesbian nonetheless. I was from a well-respected family, was popular in high school with plenty of friends and boyfriends, but I tried to […]

I am a ‘male to female’ CD/Crossdresser

My ‘story or journey’ is pretty simple. I am a ‘male to female’ CD/Crossdresser. I have always had a hidden desire for women’s clothes, heels, makeup, etc. So I started ‘trying or dressing’ in my early teens in my moms and my neighbor’s clothes when I was house sitting for them. I fell in love […]

My journey has only recently begun in some ways and yet it has taken a lifetime to get even this far. I am finding my way to me and have a wonderful love in my life. I only wish I could fully be who I am becoming in the midst of those I love and […]
