In the Car

Someone wrote…

I’m super excited because I just came out to a friend as genderqueer. Beyond saying it aloud in the car all to myself it is the first time I have said it.

The friend I came out to is awesome. She sometimes dresses up like a dude (for cosplay not crossdressing) and wears any clothes she pleases, no matter who they are marketed to. So she really is THE ideal person to tell.

I feel so good. I didn’t get to talk to her about gender much because there wasn’t much time alone, but I now have someone to TALK to. To get this out of my head and sort through it. This makes it much less scary and much more real.


What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?
