Hello and Happy Monday, Straddlers!
Do people say 'Straddlers'?! That is a thing, right?! ANYWAY. Hi. Last week the topic of discussion & advice-giving was Coming Out to Others, building on the previous week's topic of Coming Out to Yourself! I was so, so excited with all we were able to cover -- coming out via letter vs in person, coming out for a second time, telling your mom before or after she comes to visit you, coming out to religious family, and of course the hard-hitting issue of when I knew that my wife was gay...
I think that in a few months we can revisit this topic again, since all of us are coming out to other people in about a billion ways every day. Rough estimate, but you get me! Our next episode will be happening on Tuesday, March 14th at 3pm PT, and I will have Mey Rude in bed with me to talk about Bisexuality!
