for #NationalComingOutDay, I want to tell you that I came out as trans 4 times. The first in 2002. It went badly, so did the next 2. I came out for the final time years later.

Happy #NationalComingOutDay to every single member of our community. Discovering yourself is always a journey, and one I am so glad for making and accepting myself.

happy coming out day to people who:
– have already come out of their cage
– aren’t interested in coming out of their cage
– are having a hard time coming out of their cage
– were pulled from their cage before they were ready
