"What was coming out like for you?"
"Being southern baptist, I had to first come to terms with myself. Once I was able to do that, I sprinted out of the closet. One week I was on the leadership team of a campus based Christian Ministry, and 6 months later I was in a graduate Queer network. It took a long time before I stopped feeling guilty about my sexuality. For the first time in my life, I feel like happiness is within reach. In the end, my transition was never too bad. I never hated myself, but I did have friends who cut themselves and became bulimic while struggling to come out. I never struggled in that sense, but it took a long time before I was able to be intimate with someone and not feel dirty afterwards."
