An excerpt:
"My life was over.  Well at least that is what I thought.  How can I possibly be something that disturbs so many people?  Why am I something that disgusts so many people?  What are my parents going to say?  Will they disown me?  What about my friends?  Will they leave me also?  These are just a few of the questions that were screaming through my head when I finally came to terms, and realized that I am a lesbian."
