Our photojournalist loved hearing about the experience this woman had with coming out. She was very candid in telling her story, and it ended with a happy ending.

I’ve been out since 8th grade to my friends, but I was not able to choose to come out to my parents. grade. This girl had a crush on me in school, and it got out of hand and the school counselor got involved. Eventually it got out to my parents and we didn’t talk about it for 4 years. I remember being terrified, but relieved at the same time. I think you feel the same way as an adult in the workplace where you don’t really want to come out because you don’t know the culture. I am not out at work, but that is due to the patient population. there was this guy who had a pretty effeminate accent, and he had a batman shirt on one day. We had this problem patient and she got pissed at him and called him ‘faggot batman’ for the entire time he worked there. I don’t want to be called a ‘dike’ while I’m trying to do my job as a nurse.
