so weird we both posted stuff about identity ... though your story is much different from mine ... we did a vulcan mind-meld.
ps. i heart your identity. i also heart the fact that you live in d.c. because that's where i want to be.
I'm so glad you live in a culture that does come to terms and learns to accept you as you are. There are a lot of people around the world that don't have that luxury.I'm even more glad that you've accepted (and love!) who you are.
