I’m from Clackamas, OR

I’m so excited that I had the chance to be a guest blogger at ‘I’m from driftwood’ today.  The premise of the site is queer folks writing stories about their life, and as part of that owning where they are from.

I was excited to have the opportunity to share part of  my story of being kicked out, family rejection, the building of chosen family, and the way in which being kicked out is a piece of our past that never goes away.    I really love the way the site connects us back to the places we come from — I grew up in an extremely homophobic county and so to discuss in such a public way who I am, what I experienced and to tie that back to where I come from is really powerful for me.  You can read the whole story   here
