When I think about it, North American notions of “coming out” really focus on “coming out” to your parents. If this is the case, then I really haven’t “come out” yet! But if I had to pick a time, I would say I really came out about 3 years ago when I made my debut as a drag king. I don’t put too much focus on “coming out” to my parents because it isn’t something that stresses me out. I am out in every other way and I have my own chosen family to give me support.
