"I can't live the rest of my life in her closet.  If she can't come out to her family ... I think I'll have to end this relationship."

"...If only my uncle could have come out back then.  At least to me. Just knowing he was gay would have helped me a lot, growing up."

LGBTQ/Q - The art of living a gay* life with authenticity keeps getting more complex; as the freedom to be out and be yourself broadens from one century to the next, options multiply.  Good options, that sometimes come with difficult decisions.  Some things change, others remain the same:  homophobia, heterocentrism, the lived experience of growing up gay or gender nonconforming, coming out.  And the impact of HIV on individuals, partners, families, and our world.  

For over two decades, I've been helping LGBTQ/Q folk to recover or discover their authentic, essential selves, and to live the lives that feel right to them.
