Yesterday was the 8th anniversary of the last time I took off my "Steven Suit". I came home from a meeting where I presented my male persona, never again to cover up the woman who had been hiding beneath. And in so doing, I stepped into the light.
Caitlyn has done her homework. While exulting in the freedom to finally have her outward appearance reflect the woman who has lived within and to do so with the tremendous resources she has as a Hollywood star, Caitlyn so far, lives up to the responsibility.
How can a boy who's gay, and is fighting for the right to be gay, remain in a country where the whole concept "LGBTQ" doesn't exist? Where, if a boy loves another boy, or if a girl kisses another girl, the only place for them is a B-list comedy?
Sometimes drunk straight people come up to me and want to lecture me about sexuality and gender. Do they really think they're going to deliver any profound illuminations? So I just act a little drunker than them and say something ridiculous and scare them off. It's the kindest way.
For those who think Caitlyn Jenner's only talent is learning how to walk, pivot and turn in six-inch heels, hold onto your Spanx.
Caitlyn has created an awareness of gender variance far and wide in a manner never before seen or even dreamed about. Perhaps the legendary athlete is still dreaming of setting new records, which may well be what she knows how to do best!

The reality is that while dignity may now be declared by the highest court in our land, it is still denied for too many.
Seeing how my new friends have overcome their adversities is such an inspiration. They are so well-adjusted and smart. I'll be sharing their stories here in the coming weeks and I can't wait for you to get to know them. They are just like you and me.
The print media's comfort with perpetuating the false, mutually exclusive dichotomy of LGBT and Christian is distinctly not journalism. Making choices that sell newspapers, but at the cost of human dignity, are not journalistic choices. It is the disgusting devaluation of human beings for the price of a paper.
We are just trying to end our internal six degrees of separation, and bring together all those parts and aspects inside of us that have been internally battling for many years and bring them all together as the people we truly are.
