That Time I Came Out To My New Doctor

After avoiding the doctor’s office for years, I finally went and came out to him. (Note: Yes, this was all an overreaction. But yeah, I stressed over this for most of the year anyway.)

That Time I Got Nominated for the Liebster Award!

Hi everyone! I have been nominated for the Liebster Award by the wonderful angrybushbaby. To my knowledge, the Liebster Award helps build blogging communities by recognizing small blogs (less than 200 followers). I’m really thankful to be part of this! My blog is about pride, struggle, acceptance, and humanity, with a queer spin as the name suggests. Here are the rules of the Liebster Award:

How I Met My GF – Prologue – The Tumblr Power Struggle

Earlier this year, my girlfriend and I celebrated 3 years together. So I’m going to keep up this light/heavy post pattern and tell you the light story of how I found the love of my life on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. [CW–Very brief mention of self-harm.]

PROLOGUE: THE TUMBLR POWER STRUGGLE.

A List of Gay Signs That I Somehow Managed to Ignore for the Majority of My Life

I didn’t realize I was queer until I moved out and started college. I joke about how college changed my life because it made me gay, but I definitely had plenty of signs in the past that my heteronormative and internally-homophobic self-denied, as if I got extra Heterosexual EP Points every time I ignored it. So here lies my ignorance, my denial, my heteronormativity, and my literal stupidity.

That Time I Came Out to My Parents Via Email While I was 4,000 Miles Away Visiting my Girlfriend

To celebrate National Coming Out Day, I want to share the email I sent to my parents last summer while I was visiting my girlfriend in England. This email is completely unedited and contains a lot of details of my trip before working up the nerve to tell them (the coming out section is in bold). To anyone who is not out yet, do not feel guilty about it. You do not owe people in your life your identity. And if you choose to tell people over texts or emails, or anything that is not in person, that is okay. The average person does not have to struggle like you do, so do not feel bad for making it easier for yourself.

That Time I Begged the Universe I Would Never Fall in Love with a Girl

Imagine this: You are a nineteen-year-old college girl who has never had sex before. You’ve never even had a boyfriend. You think about dating your guy friend’s roommate simply because he’s into you, even though he isn’t your type. But what is my type? You ask yourself, wondering why you haven’t had a boyfriend before. What a silly thing to ask yourself, you know what your type is.

That Time My Toxic Friend Called Me Out on Being Gay Before I Was Ready to Admit It

It was the second semester of my freshman year in college, the first time on my own. This was not a good time in my life. The introvert in me formed a shell of isolation, growing thicker by the day. I went to class, I came straight back, I ate a ton of food, I did the freshman fifteen cliché, and I found no new friends that would last a lifetime like I’d been told. I was struggling to find who I was. (Not to be dramatic but I was literally having an identity crisis.) For the first time, and I would say only time, I was truly unhappy.
