My dad was a cross dresser when I was a child. This made me feel very
uncomfortable around him growing up. This confused me with his role of a
father in my childhood. I just wanted him to be my “dad”.
I learned after his passing that he was in a homosexual relationship. This
was another dilemma for me to deal with. Even though he had passed on, it
seemed like another chapter of his life was revealed to me. I had questioned
this to myself growing up. I never told anyone about myself questioning “if
he was gay”. Now the truth was there on pen and paper.
There are many of us going though this situation. There are many of us out
there. Don't think the Gender Identify Disorder does not exist or hurt
people. It is not as funny as the T.V. programs portray.
I can know what it is like living with someone who was hurting deep inside
with the Gender Identity Disorder. I lived to experience and know the
emotional pain within my father and my family.
I found a letter from my dad after he passed away. His words read "Don't
throw me away". I believe in my heart I am involved in this out of respect
and love from those words that my dad wrote.
