  1. Youtube is my saving grace!!! It keeps me connected to voice of sanity, lol…

    Our last duty station{west coast, major city} was sooo surprisingly old-school. People were friendly but definitely still very offensive {bordering on straight-up homophobic} I told myself it had to of been unintentional but it was really hard to hear & watch.
    I had the pleasure of working in nightlife/ community outreach and got a lot of exposure to LGBTQ military & vets that way {so i didn’t feel like a total closet case from space}- but was shocked to see how many people still live in the closet.
    I am proud to identify as the queer, granddaughter of a gay man, and niece of a lesbian… I didn’t grow up around military so I don’t think I was mentally ready for how old fashioned people in the community can be.
