    I've gone from being afraid that people will realize I'm not totally straight to hoping they will realize I'm not totally straight.

    Congratulations, it must be wonderful to feel such a relief !

    I totally understand where you're coming from. In my case, my style and haircut slowly changed as I was feeling more confident with this side of myself. To come out and to be ready to be honest if somebody asks me THE question is so uplifting. You're never really yourself when you're in the closet.

    There is a song we sing at the Unitarian church, and it has a verse that always brings tears to my eyes, "Let my friends from shame be undefiled."
