Hi Kacey, glad to hear that you are recovering. I too live in a small rural community and it feels as though everyone knows who I am even if I don’t know who they are. LOL!
Yes, coming out is scary and I started with nail polish just as you are doing. Yes, there was gossip after I started openly wearing dresses in public. But there was no animosity, no hostility, nothing that made me feel uncomfortable. I realized that most people don’t care what you look like or what you are wearing because they have other things on their mind. Nowadays I present as androgynous when going somewhere for the first time in public. I was mistaken for the older sister of my daughter at one place. LOL!
Kind regards, Rowena 👩🦳
