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

I’m a 57 year old lesbian living in cowboy country in Alberta, Canada. When I was a teenager, I didn’t even know lesbians existed. After an unhappy 5 year marriage, I left and shortly after that came out. I’ve lived with my partner for 30 years now and we’re welcomed in this rural community by […]

I know that I’m at the beginning of an important process

I always felt different and misunderstood while growing up. I was a good daughter and an ideal student who tried her best to hide her attraction to other girls.

I was bullied relentlessly

Well, I wish I could say my Coming Out and early life as a lesbian was all sweetness, bunny rabbits and candy canes but it wasn’t. When I told my mum, she looked at me and went; “Yeah, I know. Put the kettle on, but don’t tell your stepdad!” it was hugely anticlimactic really. My […]

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 […]

I hope to one day be able to live life openly without fear

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 […]

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.  […]
