To Be A Happy Lesbian:
A Coming Out Guide
Chapter 1 Sample Page
does it mean to be a lesbian today?
Lesbianism and the connection of heart, mind, body, and sou
lesbian can mean many things, but basically its this: women who love, cherish,
and have primary relationships with other women. Now I dont mean we are
like innocent friends who have back-rubbin slumber parties, although many
lesbian relationships start out this way, including my first one when I was sixteen.
This mirrored love is not a choice but a true way of living which comes from deep
within us. This is why I term it a connection of the body, heart, mind,
and soul. Some argue that its environmental, some say biological,
and some say it is the souls choice. I think that it is a combination of
all these things, and that were predestined to be exactly how we are. I
totally believe that I was born this way.
I remember standing in a playpen and being incredibly attracted to Marilyn on
The Munsters when I was still in training pants. Shows how old I am,
right? And some of you may even be thinking Who is Marilyn and whats
The Munsters? If you dont know, it just means I was born
in the 60s, and believe me, Im real happy with how old I am now, because
I would never want to go back. Ive lived through some crazy stuff and learned
enough hard lessons to be able to write it all down, in true hopes that youll
be able to learn a few things that will help you on your path.
All those years ago my soul was first attracted to a nice-looking woman on an
old black-and-white console TV, and my heart followed right along. My orientation
has never changed, but my mind didnt put a label on it. Me, queer?
No way. I just admire my female friends because I dont have a big sister,
Id say whenever that little question of my sexuality popped into my mind.
Sure, I dated guys for a while when I was in my early teens, though I never felt
anything for them but friendship. It wasnt until I fell totally and unmistakably
in love with my first girlfriend that I really understood myself, and the heart,
mind, soul, body connection. My heart was racing, my soul was soaring, my body
would become incredibly aroused whenever she touched me, and I sure couldnt
stop thinking about her. When I figured out what all those signs meant, it was
the happiest day of my life. But that is not always the case when women realize
they are lesbian...
