I had begun to become suicidal again during my sophomore year

I grew up as an Air Force brat from divorced parents and knew by the age of 5 that I was different. I was your typical tomboy always playing outside and hanging out with the boys. Life was great until I started having hard crushes on both my babysitter and on my friend’s big sister […]

I separated from my husband of 15 years about 9 years ago

I separated from my husband of 15 years about 9 years ago.  The divorce was the result of abuse, etc.  I have two children; they were 7 and 9 at the time.  I knew that once divorced I would be “uncovered” but I also knew that I never wanted to be with a man again.  […]

I was called a tomboy; it was just who I was

I’ve always known that I was different, from about the age of five I knew that I wasn’t like other girls. I was shocked to find out that other girls didn’t like the same things I did. I was called a tomboy, it was just who I was. I climbed trees, hated dresses and my […]

Being gay does not define who I am, it is just part of who I am

Here is my truth…the first woman I remember falling in love with was Miss Kramer, my second grade teacher.  It was 1978 and she drove a Pacer.  How I wanted to ride around our tiny little town in that car (which looked like a Milk Dud) with Miss Kramer.  I imagined what it would be […]

My daughter is very accepting and she loves her step-mum

I finally came out when I had just turned 36. My Dad died almost 2 years later, and I am eternally grateful he had the opportunity to met my wife, see me get married, and to know me as a truly happy person. This was almost 4 years ago, and I am happier than ever. […]

It feels so good to be myself and gay

I have recently come out as being a gay man. I was married and now all that has ended. It feels so good to be out and proud now. I have always liked men and enjoyed being with a man. Society dictated that marriage to a female was the way but now I am not […]

Do I live the rest of my life not telling them?

So a bit about me. I live in Johannesburg, South Africa. I learned about Chely Wright thanks to the Oprah show. I was so moved by the story of her coming out that it made me cry. So much of her story is my story and I am sure many of ours who are gay. […]
