if you don't mind me asking, what did taylor say when you came out? how did the conversation go? so happy for you!!
Obviously not gonna give specifics but I’ll give a general idea. So I was next in line with my sister to meet her and my heart was racing. It felt like my heart was gonna beat out of my chest and I was so scared. I wasn’t scared about coming out to her, rather, I was scared of opening up a very vulnerable side to me in front of her. So it’s our turn, I hug her, she knows my name, and talks about my tumblr post. Then I asked her if I could tell her something super duper personal. I start my story and talk about how when I was a freshman I didn’t know who I was and it was the year 1989 came out. I said by the end of the year I figured out that I like girls. I thanked her for her lyric in Welcome to New York: “You can want who you want!!! Boys and boys and girls and girls!!!”. Then I go on to saying that I came out to my sister the following year. I told her I’m in really dark place right now because my parents say homophobic stuff and are pretty close minded. And then I finally say that she’s been the constant to my life and that a new album coming out is going to help me get through this.
I wasn’t rushed at all during my story. She looked me straight in the eye and listened to every word I had to say. Her words were so incredibly comforting and she held my hand. She talked to me for so long, she wanted to make sure that I knew everything was going to be okay. I can’t believe I did it and I will never ever forget this moment in my life.
Love you Taylor💕🏳️🌈
