I'm On A Coming Out Role

devildog's picture

Today I came out to another person-my screenwriting teacher, who is also a lesbian! I was a bit nervous, I don't know why, but I did muster up the courage to talk to her. She said some really encouraging things-that the girls she knew who were out in the past were treated fine, no one thought badly of them. So I'm very happy:). I also talked to her about starting a GSA, and she said she'd talk to the dean of students about it.

*sigh of relief*

Sometimes I just really want to blurt it out to my peers, though-just say, "I'm a lesbian!" I try to supress the urge and go on doing my covert "coming out" queer 007 mission*laughs*. I hope they're getting the hint...I mean, a straight girl wouldn't salivate over Katherine Heptburn (spelling...?), talk about the latest gay issues way tooo much, and be writing a screenplay based on a gay relationship!

They're not that thick, however much I may think so.

My screenwriting class is so awesome though-it's small, and everyone in it are the fellow twisted minds of the school*evil laughter*. There's one sweet girl...who is sometimes scared. Her screenplay reads much like a Leave It to Beaver episode.

Also, this weekend there's a new GLBTQ group starting up in a local Unitarian church, so I'll be goin got that. Which is so freakin' cool...because my mom doesn't get what I'm going through, so I can get some advice. I am mucho looking forward to it.

LOL, my sister is feeling more and more comfortable about my being gay...I love how she jokes with me about it. You know someone's truly comfortable when they can do that! I would hate it if my family avoided the subject-I really am lucky that they're fine with it.

Anyways, I'm about to pop in Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story.

I love Stewie*smiles*.

That's Excellent!

It's great you have a teacher and a class like that! And I totally encourage you on starting a GSA. And I love your "covert, coming out 007 missions", I think that's what we're all on.

And yes Katherine Hepburn is very hot... but they might just think you mean that in an aesthetically pleasing way not a sexually pleasing way. Understand? Like that could mean you're not blind and can obviously see she is a very attractive woman.

So try to be discreet but a bit less discreet. Though the screenplay about gay relationships might do it. I don't know, I tried it and people are STILL oblivious... because it's true straight people do write about gays (ever heard of Slash and/or Femslash? They're code words in fanfiction).

Have I confused you enough yet? Unitarian church...is that like Unity? I'm glad you have a group you can go to and a place to chill without judgment.

I love Stewie too!

Nah, I get what you're saying

Nah, I get what you're saying:). I do know straight girls at my school who are into slash fanfiction. It's so sad that people assume your straight! Maybe short of running around in a rainbow cape and tights people will still be oblivious. I can be the "Super Lesbian." LOL.

*laughs*You think they would catch on because I never dote over guys whatsoever.

And I think the Unitarians are Christians who take in other form of worship from different religions. Or something like that. They're pretty liberal:).

It is indeed a special thing that you seem to be progressing so nicely in your world. To be able to tell people about your true self...such a specialness that it cannot be expalained so easily...no?
I wished sometimes it would be like this for me, the way things are going for you. I encourage you to continue and gain a freedom you seem to be attaining.

Its the little things that make the big things.

Thanks, it is such a load off

Thanks, it is such a load off my shoulders...I had been hiding for years, and in the end I was going absolutely crazy. Now I finally feel more at peace.

And I hope things get better for you too. Not being accepted for who you are is so horrible...

Yay! That's great that you've been coming out to so many people. I feel like shouting "I'm gay!" to everyone now and then, too. It's similar to my urges to speak Spanish to people when no one else around me speaks it. I've been more open about my involvement in "gay" things--the GSA, my gay poetry, etc.--but I haven't come out to any of my less close/accepting friends at school. I'm working on it.

Anyway, good job for coming out to "yet another person"...
