I came out to my 15 yr old sister several hours ago. She'd been telling me some things, and she had used the phrase "dirty little secrets" earlier, and so when we started to walk home I said "speaking of dirty little secrets" and she made some comment, then I said "do you know I'm a lesbian?" and she said "HAH! I KNEW IT! That is so cool!" Or something along those lines. And then we talked about it.
I'm moving into the phase in my life where I am a real person, and being out is a huge and vital part of that. It's wonderful.
