I Came Out!

...But not in the way I expected.
I went to the cast party at Red Robin's today & I ended up sitting with a boy I mentioned earlier in one of my journals. I know that he's trans (I knew him as a girl first) and he mentioned that he had a lot of friends on the internet and I said, "Have you ever been on Oasis? It's this writing place for queer people; I'm on there a lot..."
That's all it took. (Thanks Oasis :)) It was so easy & he didn't even bat an eyelash! I was most afraid of having to make some kind of speech to everyone I knew, but now I know that I really can "just be out." And I don't regret it at all.
Also, Opening Night was amazing. My makeup makes me look murderous and bewitching. Very fun.
Good night!

I think the bravest thing about this is that you told people about your Oasis account.

In all seriousness though, nicely done!

What a neat way of doing it!


And I hope that with this knowledge your friendship can only be richly enhanced.

Do you think he'll be showing up here on Oasis? Would you welcome it?

Maybe he will

I'm not sure. But I'd be totally fine with it--the whole point of this site is that anyone who needs it can come & talk right?

The ducks will get you!

Speeches are unnecessary. One mention, then you can just be out.

I'm happy for you. For future reference, no long speeches are needed. Now pick out other friends and let 'em know!
