THERE'S A TRANSGENDERED PERSON IN INDIANA AND I'M RELATED TO HER!!! I went to this local diner with my Dad and his wife and the only other people in there were a woman and a boy. Dad and her made small talk and during the entire they are talking I know he doesn't want to keep talking to her. As the woman goes to leave she says to me, "Make
sure you get your Dad to go to the family reunion, I send out letters to everyone every year and he never comes."
When she leaves Dad said theres no way in hell I'm going to that reunion if he's doing it. I was like "He?!" My heart jumped with joy! Long story short, she's really a man and I was related to her by marriage, but not anymore. (I'm still considering her a relative though!) That's all I could get out of my Dad. :( I don't even know her name. Just that we were related by a marriage. I'm so happy! I thought she was a woman, and thats what she wants to be known as and thats awsome! I hope I see her again. I have an L and T in my family, just two more and we're complete!
I've slowly become to realize that there is gay in Indiana, you just have to look harder and keep your eyes open. I hope one day that I'm the one that a questioning kid sees and says, "Wow I had no idea theres someone like me here..." And maybe it gives them hope or something because meeting this woman today gives me hope and she doesn't even know it.
