On Coming Out

I’ve written on this topic in the past, but feel inclined to revisit it. Coming out was one of the most difficult things I’ve ever done. I spent my youth — I’m 30 now — believing that queer individuals were headed straight to a special hell, that there was no redemption for anyone LGBT. I lived in terror for being queer, because I was wrong and doomed to spend eternity burning. I was a mistake, a failure. When I came out, I was afraid I’d be rejected by everyone I knew, but I couldn’t wait any longer. The time had just come.
