This is a pic of me on my Grandma's spare block in the country in Victoria, Australia.
Playing cricket with the boys was how I spent each and every day of my summer. I was always a tomboy - the only girl on the footy team, and the girl who was forced to wear a pink dress.
But also the girl who threw a big enough tantrum that I was allowed to wear sneakers with it.
I think I knew that I was gay as soon as I learned what gay was - but it took me a long time for me to say it out loud.
