I did it. Still more to come, but I did it.
I came out to my board members today. With the help and facilitation skills of some friends, I came out.
There were four who could not be there. We'll clue them in later. And carefully.
Of those there, each and everyone voiced loved, support, encouragement. We don't care if your gay.
They said they will stand with me and coming out to our constituency. They are willing! And they don't want this to distract us from our core mission. They want to move on but know there will be some reaction to deal with.
I cannot tell you how overjoyed, relieved, awed, and supported I feel right now. Grace happens.
