Beyond Pride #4: Infrequently Asked Questions

I’ve posted an essay each of the last three days. I have three more planned as part of that journey, but I wanted to take a break here in the middle of that and do something different today.

Over the past twenty-five years, I’ve shared my struggles with several dozen people. Each encounter was unique, and though there were numerous questions that were common to all of those conversations unique ones popped up as well. In my writings so far, I’ve done my best to answer the questions I have received most frequently, but I realize that there are likely questions you have that I haven’t addressed yet. So, today my goal is to let you ask anything you are curious about. Yesterday already saw a great question asked; if you missed it, make sure you go back and check the comments from essay #3.

For today, simply leave any queries in the comments of this post and I’ll answer them. I understand, however, that this topic can make people uncomfortable, and not everyone wants to be associated with it. If that’s the case, feel free to message me privately or email me at I’ll post the question and answer in the comments myself, but I won’t identify who asked it.
