One gay man’s reflective story proves gender is more than just a humanity issue.
We all look at ourselves in the mirror and ask questions at one point or another. We often don’t have answers to those questions—or have to venture out into the world to find them ourselves. Sometimes, it’s society that propels us on that journey. Other times, it’s the way we see ourselves–or the way we think others see us—that makes us take that courageous first step.
The journey can be one of healing, redemption or self-discovery. Above all else, however, it’s a search for identity. Some of us find it faster than others while the person beside us struggles. The road is always long and winding to some degree, regardless of which path we take to find the answers we’re looking for.
