The Flirtations used to have this bit in their show where in between songs they would talk about their individual comings out and one of them would ask the audience if there were any straight people out there and ask for a show of hands. I was nestled in between two adorable gay couples and I felt very weird raising my hand.

I've never known what it's like to be so different in such an invisible way and have everyone you know and love assume something so fundamentally incorrect about who you are. And have to tell them their assumptions are wrong.

It is out of my scope of understanding. I've seen it go beautifully and I've seen it go horribly. I hate that it has to be any kind of deal at all.
