Lisa, age 2
Los Angeles, California (1969)

I don't have many memories of this time, but I know that I really liked wearing my dad's clothes. Apparently, I did that a lot.

"Wearing dad's shoes"

I knew I was gay, probably around 12 or 13.
But I didn't actually come out till my late 20's.

Looking at it now, I think it's a funny pic. I'm not really butch, never have been. I'm more androgynous, and I think that comes through in the pic.

Lisa's first, famous-person same sex crush:
Kristy McNichol

THANKS FOR SHARING YOUR SUPERB PIC. Cute as can be 'either way'.
I am I gay man and if any woman could have "turned me" it would have been Kristy McNichol - and she turns out to "be" - guess I didn't have a prayer to be anything I wasn't meant to be.
