From Fag Hag to Mom, a ’90’s kid comes out

I thought I would marry a prince, always waiting for my white knight to show up and whisk me away. But when my boyfriends kissed me, it didn’t feel like that moment in the movies; the ones with the fireworks and romantic music when the guy finally kisses the girl at the end. Instead it […]

Shawn’s Coming Out Story

I was 24 years old, and still in the Navy during the time of “Don’t ask, don’t tell.” For many years, I was terrified of coming out, partly because of fear that I could get discharged from the Navy, but mostly of being ostracized and shamed by the people closest to me. When 9/11 happened, […]

Terry’s Coming Out Story

I was born in the early 60’s in rural Michigan. My first realization of being gay was one day on the Kindergarten school bus when a classmate whipped out his weewee (that’s what you call it when you are 6 years old). I liked what I saw! Taking showers in school was a torture trying […]
