In school we are told to hate and shun those who are bold enough to admit that they are different and we have all learned to live according to what society expects us to be. Am moving out of the closet to start living my live as i have always wanted it, It is hard to lie and harder to lie to yo self.I guess am tired of lying to my self,am attracted to a woman.
