I didn’t watch it at first (because that’s what “the gays” watch), but then one of my straight friends confessed that he’d been to a drag show and had a wonderful time, so I decided to give it a shot.

It was literally a life-changing moment for me. The contestants weren’t hung up on what was masculine/feminine or gay/straight, they were just being who they were and doing what they loved. For me, it was a big step in realizing I didn’t have to fit anybody’s mold but my own. I could like drag shows and deer hunting without being weird. I could be bisexual and Christian without God hating me. I could literally just be me and be okay!

Like you said, being on the wrong side of normal is a wonderful thing. And, as Mama Ru would say, “If you can’t love yourself, how in the hell you gonna love somebody else?”

You are so beautiful and so brave… and you are doing so much for those that think there is no one out there who understands, who loves, or who will be their voice… keep doing what you are doing.

Thanks.

I resonate with nearly every single word of this post. So much of it is so true, and also loving Taylor Swift, I love that music was able to help you get through part of your journey as well.

Love your blog 🙂
