Being queer in a binary society*

* Queer v.s. Binary in relation to sexuality, not gender.

Ever since I was very young, I've known I didn't identify as heterosexual. Though I was too young to really know what this meant in the grand scheme of things, I knew it meant that I was different to most of the other boys and girls in my class. As an eight year old, different didn't automatically equate to bad like it unfortunately does for some people, and I decided my sexuality was something that could be saved to think about for another day - there was play time to focus on, after all.

In a haze of sleep deprivation and excitement, I had an amazing break away and wanted to share some tips and trips.
