I hope that being here will be a good experience for you. There is a wealth of knowledge and experience here, so don’t be afraid to lean on it.
While we may regret when the light bulb finally went off regarding our sexuality or gender identity, I think the message is heard when we are able to hear it. But, first we have to get to a place where that can happen.
In a few weeks, hopefully I will be 72. Sorting out my sexuality began at 42 and considering my gender identity started at about 56. I came out (in front of ~130 people) as transgender, non-binary at 66.
It happens when it happens…
