I have been out and PROUD for 10+ years, and am approaching the end of a very complicated relationship with a man. I am coming to the realization that as a woman, and as a woman with a disability, I was overcome by social pressures to find security in a man. Over the last 6 months I have gained the confidence in myself again to branch out on my own in search for love and romance and to exit this unsatisfying relationship.
I identify and have always identified as a lesbian; though here and there in the last 2 years I have started plugging in the term 'queer' where appropriate due to my relationship with a man.
I am forever indebted to those who come before me in the fight for the freedom of GLBT existence and 'lifestyle.'
Overall, I seek justice in the world and love in my home. Romance, I have learned, is hard to come by but OH, SO NECESSARY!!!
