Out of one closet, into another …
I came out to my parents when I was 16 years old, but it wasn’t until 10 years later that I worked up enough courage to come out as an atheist. I knew that their god would be more forgiving of my homosexuality than my complete belief in ‘Him’ or ‘His’ son, Jesus.
I came out of both around the same time. I think that I came out as atheist first though.

LGBTQ stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer. So why do so many LGB and Q people marginalize transgendered people and categorize them as “other?” If we want to change others, then we need to be willing to stand together, amongst each other, and fight for each other. Because, no matter how different we may seem, we are all fighting for the same thing.
Reblog this if you would stand up for a transgendered person. Reblog this if you would befriend them. Reblog this if you would be willing to talk to them.
Why is this even a problem? >_>
