A small announcement.

For some of you, this may come as a surprise. For others, this may just confirm everything you’ve thought about me for several years. Now, I know people have been joking about it for a while–the way I act, dress, move, etc.

First off–I realized, quite some time ago, that there is this other part of myself that I’ve been ignoring.

This part of me, is well, me. I’m not going to try to explain it or rationalize it. Just recently, I decided to act on it. The last couple of weeks, I’ve been going to “those” places where “those” people hang out.

I enjoyed it.

People were friendly. I had a very positive experience. Those of you who know my housemate, I’d like to say that he’s been very helpful with advice and support while I made my decision about letting everyone know.

While I’m making this announcement, I’d like to say that this isn’t a lifestyle “choice,” it’s part of who I really am.

I’m not going to turn my back on how I’ve lived the last 27 years of my life. I’m still the same person you knew before–I’m just exploring other options.

Mom, dad–I just want you to know that this isn’t your fault
