A bowl of personal identity served with blueberry pie
Sometimes, I wonder if my partner is gay. We’ve been together for a long time and I know she loves me, but I just don’t think she sees herself as a lesbian. She has never said “I’m gay” out loud but would, at the most, say that she has a partner. Though I wish one day there would be no labels and that no one is gay or straight but just people, at this present moment, we still need to stand up for our identity.
My partner will be coming to Taiwan tomorrow (hopefully without delay because both Hong Kong and Taiwan have been hit by a typhoon today and air traffic has been nasty). It so happens that a local group will be demonstrating for gay marriage* tomorrow and I will be going for sure and I really want my partner to join. She has never joined Pride, IDAHOT or any type of rally to support gay rights but I really hope she will. I’m not pushing her to come out but I just want her to see what it means to be in love with someone of your own gender and what we must stand up for. I just want her to see who I am as a lesbian living in a heterosexually dominant world and that she might slowly understand her own identity.
