I hope you come visit. For a lot of reasons, I am not sure if I will be around for the holidays.
Say what now? Um why?????
(Redacted), I thought you should know I am transgender for sometime now, in fact I was going to tell you when (redacted), but I was asked not to by (redacted). More recently, telling you was brought up again, but again, I was asked not to because of fears of you being bullied if you know, which honestly makes no sense to me.
This is why I won’t be in Oklahoma for Christmas and am undecided for Thanksgiving. It is not easy continuing to hide who you are with family, and it is even harder knowing some of the views family has towards the LGBTQ+ community.
I am not sure how you will react to this, but I hope I will have your continued love and support. Know that I love you and will always be there for you if you need me.
Honestly, I’m not sure how I am supposed to react, I am a little shocked, but if this is what you want, then I support your decision. I love you too
I can understand and appreciate that. It shocked everyone. I appreciate your support. It means the world to me.
I couldn’t have asked for a better or more hopeful response. Where things go from here, only time will tell, but this is a moment of hope.
