We learn from what we read, we learn from our own experiences, and we learn too from other people’s experiences. May this feature speak to you of acceptance and celebration of who you truly are. (And may I just say, “Ayan, makinig kayo sa lola ninyo!”)
In the September 3 issue of Newsweek, an 88-year-old woman living in Orange County, Southern California writes about her secret gay lovelife, and thus comes out in the open. After spending 44 years with her life partner, Loraine Barr finds the courage to go public with their relationship, and wrote the essay “The Love That Will Finally Speak Its Name.” Touching.
Very touching too is this soundbyte with Ms. Barr relating how her mother on her deathbed accepted her for who she really is, ultimately saying “I understand now. It’s okay to be who you are.” Listen:
