CAN'T WRITE STRAIGHT

All Things Written LGBTQ+

 

THE STORY

Growing up, I didn't know that I was gay. I definitely had a unique interest in Batman, but the attraction was repressed because I was obsessed with being straight.

Once I acknowledged my same-sex attraction and came out of the closet, a weight had been lifted from my shoulders where I felt I could finally breath. In hindsight, I understand why I was concealing my difference to my small town Colorado peers, but I wish I had more bravery to talk about it with others.

For the longest time, I thought life had dealt an unfortunate hand centered around my sexual orientation. But I’ve taken that frustration, heartache, and fire within to create a space for other LGBTQ+ members to read and write about their experiences. Whether it's through tears or laughter, it is my intention to educate others on LGBTQ+ issues and provide solace for anyone struggling.
