I wish I’d spoken to my parents before I came out as transgender on Facebook
was all ‘just a phase’? Was I even queer at all?I know now that all of these identities are intrinsic to who I am and what I’ve always been but in that moment of panic, I wasn’t sure.Looking back, I wish I could reassure myself. I knew the moment I pressed send that I had made the correct decision to be true to myself, but such a life changing event made me doubt everything I knew.I wish those thoughts hadn’t crept into my mind. Perhaps, if they hadn’t I wouldn’t have run to my mum crying because I would have been more sure of myself.
