As I’ve come out over the years about different things, I’ve come to understand that the act of coming out is not a one-time event. It’s not like once you’ve come out, it’s over and things are either fine or they’re not. There are the on-going discussions that come up and there’s further outings that happen (either by you or other people, sometimes accidentally). It takes an open heart to commit to being honest about the fears and anger that can arise, and to communicate these feelings in a healthy way.
Jiz Lee — “How to Come Out Like A Porn Star”.
Jiz wrote this in terms of coming out as a porn star, being kinky, queer and having a trans* identity, but this can resonate to those who come out about anything. Also, Jiz Lee is awesome.
not really a submission…
once, I went to IKEA with Jiz and a close friend. I didn’t know who they (Jiz) were, but thought the whole time…”who is this hot, shy creature.?” At some point we ended up at their place in Oakland, and I met their snake. Anyway, only afterwards….they blossomed into a person that warrants a ‘fuckyeah…” tumblr. kudos.
