I was a feminine boy growing up, taught to be a ‘regular straight’ boy.

At first, I was confused and not sure how to behave. Now I’m a feminine man, living in Colorado, always mistaken for a trans woman.

It doesn’t bother me, I’m comfortable either way.

While my culture does not accept me as I am, I have learned to love, cherish and respect myself.
