I’m worried about letting my cishet friend see my queer AF trans non-binary truth without my cishet mask. I tore that mask off for my queer friends because I was so totally safe. But my cishet friends are leaving me uncertain. I just don’t know how they’ll react.

I knew my queer friends would embrace me because, holy crap, the queer community, in general, is amazing and super supportive. Cishet people don’t have that so they don’t know how to give it. Even the best ally can’t know what it is like to be embraced by our queer family.

I know.
