Times have indeed changed since my coming out party…
wait I didn’t have a coming out party.
It’s wonderful that the youth of today can embrace
who they are and have the courage to
COME OUT boldly, cleverly, creatively and oh so publicly.
LET US ALL EAT GAY CAKE!
Accompanying the cake was a note:
good morning parents,
i’ve wanted to tell you for a long time.
i thought doing it this way would be a piece of cake.
i hope you still love me.
i mean, it’s hard not to love someone who baked you a cake.
all my friends know and still love me.
your acceptance would be the icing on the cake.
i hope you, much like this cake, are not in tiers.
i hope we can look back on this and say
“boy, this one really takes the cake.”
it gets batter.
love, laurel (sorry for so many puns)
Way to go Laurel!
