Looking forward

Someone wrote…

I’ve come a long way since I first discovered the word “genderqueer”. It used to be that I would turn red or shake every time someone mentioned LGBT topics (I think I was scared of being “discovered”), I wouldn’t even want to look at men’s clothing in the mall (wearing it was unthinkable), and I felt like I had to act like a girl just because that’s what people expected of me.

Now, I can comfortably talk about LGBT topics (and even bring it up with people, hinting that I am queer), I go around in public actually comfortably wearing men’s and women’s clothing, and I feel like I can be myself more than I’ve been able to in over a year. Things are looking better, but I’ve still got a long way to go to feeling satisfied with my life.

I look forward to the future!

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    Best of luck to you! That sounds so much like what I used to do…sometimes I’d try on men’s clothes in a department store and leave them in the dressing room because I didn’t want to be seen carrying it out.
