Intersex people are still largely not out of the closet. To those of you who are coming out for the first time, & to those who keep making the choice to come out to people in your life - you are awesome. Coming out as Intersex has been one of the most freeing, necessary things I've ever done in my life. It's still hard sometimes for sure, but being out has made my whole experience of being a person out in the world - whether interacting with other people or enjoying some solitude - such a different experience. Staying in the closet can make things easier in the short-term (and in some situations, it's necessary to stay safe). But there's no replacement for feeling free to live your truth.
For everyone coming out today - and courage and love to you! <333
