This Thursday, I’m coming out. Nope, I’m not gay. But I do have two love partners. Most of those who know me either know this already or have probably figured it out. If you don’t know me, you may be saying “so what?” or “huh?” or “what does that mean, exactly?” I haven’t written about it much up until now, not really wanting it to be the defining characteristic of my online presence. I also value my privacy, and it’s not really anyone’s business what my relationships are like.
But, thanks to a gentle nudge from an editor I’m acquainted with online, I’ve written an article called “Surrounded by Love: Our Alternative Family.” It’s going to be published on Thursday in an online magazine called Rethinking Everything. I’m feeling very excited, and a perhaps a bit nervous. It’s not like it’s going to be in Good Housekeeping or on Oprah, but still. I’ve been working on the article for several months now (off and on), and the cool thing is, I’m very pleased with how it came out.
