“I still want to go back in time and be an awkward, sappy teen holding hands with a boy during a rom-com, or have him hold my shirt sleeve during a scary movie. I still want to go back in time and attend a college formal with a dude. I still want to go back in time and attend my friends’ weddings with someone I care about. I missed too many milestones along the way, too many rites of passage, and while I really don’t have many regrets, that stuff continues to eat away at me at times. But coming out was the greatest thing I could have ever done.
