Jim, age 5
Portland, MI (1994)

Here I am with my siblings. Notice that my sister is holding some kind of bat, and my brother is holding a football.

And I am being me.

I was never into sports, really, and I suppose I knew that I liked guys from a very young age. I was always more attracted to Prince Eric and not Ariel from The Little Mermaid.

It's obviously a very telling sign, but it took me until sophomore year of high school to admit who I was.

Now I am very happy with a boyfriend of 3.5 years, and a loving family that accepts me for who I am.
