Clinton Barnes, thanks for writing this! I find that many queer young people who grow up in homes that are hetero-normative but not homophobic have a tough time with sexual development and coming out to themselves and others. I’m sharing your post with a 20-year-old friend of mine because I think it’s going to resonate strongly with him
