Everyone has a story, here’s part of mine
I’m part of a generation or two of women, women of a certain age, who struggled with sexual identity and the “shoulds” our parents shared with us. We were raised to believe our worth was tied to our ability to find a man. Every time I approached my sexuality, I was stopped, not finding the community where I would be welcome. Finally, I was able to accept myself just on my own. Here I am a 50+ year old woman coming out as a bi-sexual and hoping to help other older women find their way home.
Thanks so much to Pride Portraits for allowing me to be part of this project. Pride Portraits is the brain child of Eric Edward Schell and Hugo Perez, they live and work here in Houston, Texas they met in the San Francisco Bay Area during one of the earliest Pride Portrait sittings Eric held. Thank you so much Pride Portraits for your work in our community!
And, here’s my daughter Sarah
“I’m a gay man in a woman’s body. I love everything leather lifestyle. Trying to find room in the community has been very hard. Most places don’t know how to take my feminine girl who’s a man.”
