Getting Out

No, I don't mean getting out of your relationship--I mean getting out of the closet! I recently wrote an article on coming out of the poly closet, but there is still so much more to say. The different levels of being out, who to come out to, why to come out and why to stay in the closet. But sometimes coming out poly also means coming out bisexual, or gay, or genderqueer, et cetera. And then there is the "coming out" that is not poly at all (or swinging, or open, or whatever). How do you tell your parents that you may have been born female but you identify as male? How does a stone butch tell her girlfriend that she's stone? Is it hard? Easy?

I would love to hear your thoughts, stories, and input on this topic. x-posted at a few places.
