Sara

Sara, age 8
Elkins, WV (1984)


I was always very athletic and fearless. Still am, but now I sport long hair thanks to my hippie genes.

From my earliest cognizant memories, I knew I was gay. My parents knew too, and when I finally came out at age 13, their response was, 'Yeah, we know.'

I was very fortunate to grow up with extremely supportive parents and friends in rural West Virginia. It gets a bad rap sometimes, but my experience was - and still is - that WV is a wonderful place to live and work for all types of folks

Sara's first, famous-person same sex crush:
Barbra Streisand (in "Yentl")

Totally obvious
