This is not a disclaimer.

After reading some friends’ blogs (Kara and Blaze) I decided that it was time to do my own, extremely belated, “National Coming out day” post. You can probably guess what my main point is going to be, you have probably read a number of blog posts about how straight people don’t have to ‘come out’ […] Continue reading

National Coming Out Day.

With yesterday being National Coming Out Day, now seems a better time than ever to discuss my story. Here goes…     I’m straight.   From a young age, I did not feel like there was something very different about how I acted or who I liked.
