Thank you for teasing apart two things that I hadn’t even realized were tangled for me. For years, I had a longing — it felt a little bit emotional, a little bit sexual, and a lot spiritual — to be an effeminate boy. It wasn’t even a fantasy per se, because the yearning hurt so much. Yet I still discounted it, because I lacked certainty in who I was. It was only after I stepped into the light of who I truly was that I felt a peace that let me know.
