Brandon, age 5
Littleton, Colorado (1983)

I asked my parents for a Barbie doll for my birthday.
I had to be content with a Ken doll instead...

"Barbie substitute!"
I knew I was gay/different at about age 4.
My parents noticed signs as early as age 2.

I really like this picture. Looking at it now reminds me of
how much I accepted and loved myself as a child, exactly the way I was.

Brandon's first, famous-person same sex crush:
Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Zack Morris, "Saved By The Bell")
