June is Gay Pride month.
Kelly has requested like minded bloggers too post the picture above in their blog in support of Gay Pride. He also asks the blogger to write about their coming out experience, not coming out reasons, or why the blogger has chosen to post the picture. Here's what I have to say:
I'll spare you the childhood stories of 7 minutes in heaven, spin the bottle, strip poker, sleep overs, and the adult that shouldn't have but did. Sexually I matured early and enjoyed every bit of it with both genders. By the 9th grade I was sure that I was into other guys, but played both fields. It helped that I had a girlfriend that was sexually flexible as well. Chalk it up to an interesting neighborhood of kids, because we were. I've been engaged twice, but gladly dodged those bullets. I've had 2 straight and 2 gay - long term relationships. It's been a while since I've been in a relationship for any length of time. I'm now alone, but not lonely. I do what I want to do under my own terms. It wasn't before now, and is not currently, a need of mine to come out. I'm just me and I have always liked myself. Well that's sort of a lie. There was a time that I struggled with my faith. But then I realized that the big-guy and I, will deal with that when and if the time comes. I also believe my god to be a loving god and appreciates me for who I am. That settled, I go on with my life.
I am not out to my mother and father, but my younger sister knows that I am gay. It doesn't hurt my feelings anymore that my parents told all three children at the dinner table when I was 16 that, "If you ever want to bring someone home - that is outside the norm - then don't come home." My folks are fairly simple when it comes to addressing life's issues. They don't care for complications. I respect that, if that's how they wish to live their lives. I'll let them live in ignorance. *But they know I'm gay.* You don't reach 42 years of age, not married and no children, without your parents wondering and cerebrally "knowing." Even if they don't want to admit it to themselves. *But they know.* So now you know.
I'm not a hard read, nor do I stand out in a crowd carrying a flag like the one above. But if you're bold enough to ask, I figure that's reason to tell ya. Just for fun though, if you don't know and don't ask - it's fun to keep you guessing if your content on listening to the rumors. Because I don't give a rats ass. I do like me - others like me and some don't. But very few don't like me for the reason of my being gay. It's mostly because I told my "truth" about something else. Down below I mention my 5% negative side and 10% evil side, and my ability to show-out in public. Now, that's cause for concern. That's my story - and I'm not finished.
