It’s a question we often ask people we think of as “minorities.” “When did you first realize you were [queer/black/differently abled/atheist] different”? Of course, we’re all different. We just forget how hard we worked when we were young to hide it. Could sharing our stories – about realizing something that made us different or weird and how we hid it from the world – draw us all a little closer together? (I promise to share at least one of my own 😉
