The letters LGBTQ are just another way of saying that Love is Love.
Serena put my hair up in a in a French braid. I've always wanted a French braid, but I'm horrible at doing it myself. Most of the girls at school have such beautiful hair. I'm stuck with this frizzy, messy mop of red curls. When Serena, one of the more popular girls — who has the shiniest and slickest, most beautiful black hair I've ever seen — wanted to do my hair at the slumber party, of course, I said she could.
In A Fit Of Love and Rage
The original letter was a local trans woman’s story; the editor picked it because the woman was her neighbor, and she thought it interesting and meaningful. The letter detailed vast amounts of shame the writer still holds; she called herself disgusting, disfigured, in need of correction.
Coming out unexpectedly
So I'm not gonna lie to you guys. I first came out to literally everyone but my family and people I knew on social media. I first came out on TikTok putting the lgbtq+ flag into my bio and it felt very freeing.
Sitting in the booster seat I was 6 years old. We were driving around downtown after going to the movie theater for my birthday. I was admiring the rainbow flags hanging from the street lamps and asked my mom what they were for. She said they were for weird people but I didn't need to know any more because I was too young. So I looked out the window at the bright flags bringing color to this gray and brown city.

At first, the two men enjoyed their alarm system. They would playfully mimic its sonorous announcements. "Front door," the simulated female voice would announce in its pleasing if robotic voice.
I'm still learning about my Sexuality
I knew I liked boys and girls at school, though I hid it and covered it up for all my school life, afraid of what the others would think. During the time when I went to school, being part of the LBTQ communities was pretty much dismissed, ridiculed, and outcasted by those around me. I was also sexually abused at school, and severely bullied, so for myself, it was easier to keep my 'other side' trapped in a cage instead of showing people who I truly was and facing more bullying for being bi-sexual. Of course, as I got to those later years of puberty, the attraction grew stronger, but I stayed under the umbrella of 'heterosexual' instead, because that felt safer for me than coming out. I did find myself extremely attracted to both boys and girls at school, and that became more obvious once I reached around aged 14. I also found it difficult coming out and telling family, because my family life was quite difficult and I was worried about what they would think.

Swag and Trans, Trans and Swag
I am trans. That’s it. That’s literally it. That’s all there is. I, Isaac Vaughn-Blue, am indeed transgender. And as cool and as swag as that sounds, it’s a bit of a challenge, one of the hardest in my life. When I found out I was trans, my whole world started to revolve around it. Yes, I know it shouldn’t, but it does. Especially since I am only so young and trying to work out the gimmicks. Like what, you ask? Things like being comfortable with said gender and sticking to it, but also being confident and not wanting to cry every time someone doesn’t understand. With being trans and all, you have to explain it well. But anyways, back to the main point. There are some huge challenges I deal with being, you know, trans, but I make it through.

My Experience on Being Openly Gay in the Workplace
I would like to think of myself as a genuinely happy person- or at least tell myself that’s what I am. Throughout my life, coming out, was a fairly easy process for me. I wasn’t judged, I was completely accepted by my family and friends, and I found myself proving to those against the LGBT+ community that we’re just people who love people.
