Day 2 – Did you have any experiences as a child that might have foreshadowed your sexuality?

Everyone around me knew I liked women before I did. When I was in the fifth grade, I mentioned at the dinner table a classmate that I said I “idolized” and my parents exchanged knowing glances. All through high school, I had to repeatedly explain to people that I was straight, despite having almost exclusively homosexual friends and being an active member of the school’s Gay/Straight Alliance. Gender-wise, I have told people all along that I wanted to be a boy.

Being straight and cisgender was tiring. I’m glad I caught up with everyone else’s understanding of my sexuality. 😉
