happy international lesbian day!


today is international lesbian day! it isOctober 8th and that's international lesbian Day every year! and I just wantedto make a quick little recording of my thoughts on, I guess, being a lesbian! Ialways post and celebrate on all of my social media for international lesbianday because I think it's important obviously, and yeah, I'm 31 years oldand I came out 16 years ago when I was 15, about two weeks after my 15thbirthday actually, and the experience of coming out was very scary, but ultimatelyvery underwhelming.

I was very scared to come out because I had Catholic parents, but ultimately when I did come out to them it was.

.

.

they had some like, concerns and stuff but they thought that whatever was going on with me was way worse.

they thought, like, I was on drugs or I was pregnant or something, so they wererelieved to learn that it was nothing like bad going on in my life, and todaythey're like completely wonderful and perfect and like fully loving andaccepting and supportive of me.

but also of gay and lesbian people as a whole, soI couldn't be luckier honestly! I have a really great family, like I'm 100% out inevery single aspect of my life.

at home, with my family, with all of my friends, and my whole extended family too.

like my extended family is all very close, all mycousins and aunts and uncles and stuff.

.

.

I'm completely out, I'm out at work, I wasout at University when I was in University.

.

.

yeah I've been out for so long that it's like.

.

.

it's not really a thing anymore.

I mean, obviously you have to come out to peopleall the time when you're gay but like, I'm never hesitant to come out I guess.

like I don't ever find myself in a situation where I'm.

.

.

I'm not willing toor I'm worried about putting out that information.

like I'm completely out, completely proud, completely happy about Who I am.

and yeah it's awesome.

I started to realize that I liked girls or had crushes on girls when I was around four, um I didn't know at the time like what it meant or if it, you know, that it waseven a thing, but I always remembered like.

.

.

I was yeah, I had big crushes onlots of like girls or.

.

.

women, they were women, in movies and stuff.

and then I'mwhen I was about twelve was when I like learned what it was to be gay and thatwas when I was like "ooh, that's what I am.

" and yeah so, I realized that at about age12 and then I came out at just you know barely after my 15th birthday and nowI'm 31 and I've been out forever! and yeah I don't, I don't know.

.

.

I think a lotof people unfortunately have like struggles or difficulties are like hardstories about coming to terms with who they were, and coming out and like, theirfamilies and that kind of thing.

.

.

but I guess I just wanted to share like, mystory and how I, um, I was never ashamed or scared to be gay when I learned what gay was I was like "oh okay, that's what I am, cool".

it was not a thing eventhough I like, my parents were religious and I was raised in that way, like Iwasn't afraid of it or whatever.

and then yeah coming out was like totally fine, myparents like were never.

.

.

they never like were angry or turned their back on me oranything.

they, like, had questions and they were, like, wanting to explore it buteverything was totally fine and, like I said, today, like my my mom is the cutestlike, I call her a little Rainbow Warrior.

because she is so like, supportive andproud and she's a great mom.

and my dad is in his own ways.

like he'sI don't know typical dad, he's like quiet and doesn't say much but there are thesethings every now and again where I'm just like "hmm, that's cool".

like he'll just say something randomly every now and again, and it surprisesme 'cause he doesn't say much but yeah.

I don't know.

this is like, totally rambley, which, you know, that's who I am! and it has no real direction and it's not evenlike feminist focused or anything , but it's International lesbian Day! and so why nottalk about lesbianism in a super positive way? because that's what myexperience has absolutely been.

from realizing I was a lesbian, to coming out, to today like.

.

.

.

I really couldn't have asked for a better experience and abetter life and a better family.

like everything is awesome.

and yeah! okay well, I guess I'm gonna go! so yeah bye! happy lesbian day!.
