October 11 is National Coming Out Day. The Human Rights Campaign has some good stuff for celebratin, including some YouTube opportunities. I watched some folks' "coming out" videos and laughed, and cried. Really cried.
How much longer I can stay in the closet one can only guess. Maybe I'm trying to create some situation in which I will really "out" myself. Not a good plan.
Feelings have continued to be very close to the surface. This week, however, the drama is not about longing for straight normalcy as it has been longing for complete out-ness.
WTF am I doing coming out at 51 years old? Better late than never?
Yes. dammit. Better late than never.
In so many ways, I do not have a clue what I am doing.
But that never stopped me before! gayly forward.
