"I feel pretty!"

This was my Mom's dress and the only heels she would let me wear were charcoal gray. Definitely the wrong choice for a yellow dress, but I was clearly pleased nonetheless.

I also went to middle school in this outfit. Seemed normal at the time.

I think I always had a pretty good idea I was gay, but fought it for a long time.

I mostly remember everyone saying what a pretty girl I made on this particular day.

Tim's first, famous-person same sex crush:
George Michael
