Part 2 of 4

‘Coming out wasn’t easy. I was standing in the shower, one night, with a gun in my mouth and I was so ready to go. I had turned my cell phone off and, out of the blue, my sister called me and the phone rang. I have no idea to this day how that call came through. She told me she was pregnant with my oldest niece. She was talking to the baby about me and she told me that the baby had been dancing inside her stomach and was ‘talking’ to her about how she can’t wait to meet her uncle. Well, I was pissed. I was so mad at my sister because I was so ready to go. I then realized that my sister loved me as I am…and even though it didn’t fix me overnight, I realized that our family is held together by love and even if I were to lose that, I also have other people around me who love me dearly, even if we’re not related and they’re part of my family, too. My mind changed and shifted into the idea that I want to be a better person. I want to be who I am and I want to be OK with that. I was born and raised non-denominational Christian and I’ve had my conversations with God and I’ve come to realize that I am exactly who God needs me to be. My grandmother once told me, ‘you’re going to make it and you’re going to do something amazing with your life.’’
