5. "Was I Wrong?":
Part of my gay experience – a large and ongoing part – is the constant act of coming out to "them." Every new encounter with my husband and a hotel clerk or a Facebook request from a high school friend I'd all but forgotten about or meeting that cousin of my dad's I didn't know I had. Chief among my fears and struggles, especially early in my life, was the fear of losing my mother's love when she learned the truth about me. This movement is from the point of view of a mother or a sister or a lady in a red state who found herself in the middle of holding onto old, fixed beliefs and reconciling them with the man (the son, the friend, the brother) she says she loves.
