Guest Feature: Not Coming Out
Ace Baxter shares why one can't always come out - and asks for your input. An except: Most people have a distinct memory of ‘finding out they were gay’ which I never had…I never really ‘found out’.

I honestly believe that everything is possible, I always did, so when I heard stories where mommies and daddies loved each other, I never once doubted that mommies and mommies, or vice versa daddies and daddies could be together. I mean really, why not? As I grew up my thinking obviously did too, but the basics stayed the same. As a great person once said: I’m attracted to people, not genders.
