I want to wish everyone in the LGBTQIA+ community the best today and to remind those who are LGBTQIA+ adjacent and or heteronormative that coming out is rarely a single moment, rather it is the journey of our lifetimes. Coming Out gives us the power to shape who we are with words and terms that allow many LGBTQIA+ to identify themselves and feelings that they have carried with them for years, but that initial moment is the beginning.
I am proud of every single LGBTQIA+ person who is out and I am equally proud of those who are still in because they are also part of my queer family. Anyone who is not in a space to be out or has not reached point on their journey or those who may never reach that point on your journey you are welcome here with me. No matter the term or collection of terms you identify with or if you choose none, you are accepted and loved here exactly as you are because all of you are worthy.
Personally I find it odd when heteronormative people ask me when I, “knew I was different,” because I never felt different and I still do not feel different simply because I am a homoromantic and homosexual person. The exact moment I realized I preferred the male body was when I was 11, at summer camp, frequently a place where young people discover themselves, that didn’t feel different. I realized I loved men romantically much later when a large male body held me at 25 and said everything was going to be alright. Two moments separated by years and a lot of learning in between.
