COMING OUT

Introduction

Hello all you rockers of words, today blog is inspired by a conversation had by friends who shared different experiences of coming out.

I remember sitting in the bleachers at school during P.E. we would watch the boys and share in some interesting innocent sport-like banter.

I recently found two of my diaries realizing that one of the diaries is solely about her and our adventures together.  True to form most of the crew we hung out with all but disappeared, not true with her.  We kept in touch making our bond stronger.  Her story of courage has inspired me to write this blog.  This blog post is dedicated to my dear friend Beth.
