Portland, Maine (1992)
On Christmas Day of 1991, my parents got my sister a dress and got me a tuxedo.
I burst out crying when both gifts were opened, because I wanted a dress like my sister's.
They returned the tux and bought me a dress instead. And I wore that thing, and my pink jelly sandals, until they both were worn out.
As you can see, I was still wearing them both during summer 1992, as seen in my photo.
So after all the Barbie dolls, putting on my sister's clothing, and dressing up as a bride in a wedding, I finally realized I was gay 15 years later.
