The holiday season is chaotic even under normal circumstances. When a pair of DPS special agents show up on the doorstep the Friday before Christmas, though, the seasonal stress gets elevated to an entirely new level.

On Friday the 21st of December, Janelle and I were r...

As I prepped for coming out in June I made a point of telling those closest to me what I had planned. Most of these people had known of my journey for years, but I needed to let them know that I was going public. I gave everyone this head’s up because I knew that some...

I’d like to thank everyone who reached out to me over the past few weeks and offered words of encouragement regarding my journey as a minor-attracted person (MAP). Your responses have been uplifting, and I wanted to make sure that you knew just how much they meant to m...
