Thank you so much for sharing this. I relate so hard to your experience of being drawn toward gay people of every gender. There’s this amazing phenomenon where queer people tend to find one another, even as teenagers and little kids, even before any of us know who we are — and many of us have had the sense of knowing or suspecting we’re some flavor of LGBTQ+ but not being sure which. Sometimes I still don’t know! Queerness is so individual and diverse and ever-evolving for so many of us, and that’s lovely. I love identity labels, they help me understand myself and find community, but I also believe in viewing ourselves in limitless, amorphous, open-ended ways.
