It took me a while to build the courage to do it. Of course, me being my procrastinating self, I put it off commercial break after commercial break. We were watching CSI: Miami, and I just took the remote and paused it and I just said it. I said the two words while the metaphorical coin flew through the air. 50/50. Good or bad. The outcome in the fate of chance.
My mother spoke. The coin landed.
The coin had a metaphorical thumbs up. She was fine, she was fucking fine with it. “You are who you are, and I’m upset you didn’t come to me earlier to tell me. All I want for you is to be happy and that makes me happy. This doesn’t change the fact that I love you because I don’t love you any less.” - Mother.
And that’s my coming out story. I know it’s a short one but that’s mine. When I get back to school I’m going to be me. Hello, my name is Jordan and I’m gay. I am who I am.
omg who remembers when this happened and was live with me when I did it!!!!!!!?????
