I’ve created this section, dedicated to all things LGBTQ+, gender, and sexuality, related. As a queer, single mother “by choice”, I see firsthand how important it is that we start talking about, and normalizing these conversations. Let’s face it, no two people, nor two families are exactly the same. That’s the beauty of life.
So, this is a place where we can talk about all the things that make us alike, and celebrate all the ways that we are different. Because, somewhere along the way, we’ve created a lot of shame, confusion, and “unwritten rules” about gender and sexuality, and I’m here to squash that!
Due to my own guilt and shame, I didn’t fully admit to myself (let alone, society) that I was gay, until I was 32. I had questioned it since I was a teen, but I spent more than half my life trying to talk myself into being something, I wasn’t. That proves 2 things. 1. You can’t think your way out of being gay (or whoever/whatever else you are). 2. There are way too many people out there, wasting too much of their lives trying to be something they’re not.
As long as we’re talking about 2 (or more) consenting adults, you do you, boo. And, as long as you’re not looking to have sex with me, your gender and sexuality, are none of my concern. I think if we start accepting each other, in our entirety, you’re going to see a lot less wounded and confused adult children.
At the end of the day, no matter our race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender, sexuality, religion, age, IQ, ability, or disability- we are all people. We all bleed the same blood. We all have feelings. We all deserve to love and be loved.
My hope is that this site can be a place where whoever you are, whatever your family dynamic is, you feel seen and heard, and celebrated!
