I don’t have too many random interactions with strangers where we talk about my queer experience, but it does happen at times. My most unexpected encounter with such a situation happened with the 15-year-old boy I acquainted on the 8-hour flight back home.
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.]
