We don't have to dress-up to hide. For more years than I can remember I had to play a role, hide who I really was. No longer, no more. I feel like a full fledged citizen now. The Supreme Court decision to strike down part of DOMA was very powerful and freeing. Funny how much I think I was hidden but probably not, I was probably very obvious. I cracked up my friend Brian recently while we were doing art at Irene's house. I was being campy and Brian started to laugh so hard that he started to cry. (I like a good laugh that brings me to tears.) I guess my actions were not so subtle. Maybe I have not been subtle all my life.
