Hi Trisha, good question and bound to get a variety of answers. I have to vote first time I told someone – and was accepted. Yeah, I know I picked two, but they can go together – at least I was lucky enough that way. To me this is the big one. Many others are wonderful milestones; I mean I cant wait to go out with others en femme and just …. live. But the Gold Medal has to go to coming out, right? To finally end the hiding and say “This Is Me!” Emotionally this trumps everything. For me, not having to hide who i am from my family and (some) friends is the biggest weight off my shoulders I could ever have imagined. Gold medal? Heck, a gold, platinum, and diamond encrusted, glorious medal it was!!
