I was given the privilege and honor of being chosen to tell my side of the story with Devon coming out. We have written about some of the details of it through the Reno Tahoe Tonight magazine, through HuffPost and through this website.
When Devon first came out about 9 years ago, there was nothing as far as help for me, the spouse of a husband coming out. Really, there still is very little help. While I am currently writing a book about our lives during that time, the only thing I can do to help the spouse of the Mixed Orientation Marriage, is to encourage the other side that they WILL be okay. It’s a tough burden to carry and by facing it head on in all of its intricacies, a person can and will come out on the other side to a Samesides life.
Below is the link to the recording of my experience on stage through “Risk! Live Storytelling”, which you can actually download for FREE through iTunes on their website. My portion of the story is under “Live From Reno 2!” at about the 19:30 minute mark. My segment has been moved since it came out on their website to the “Listen” menu option. Click on the Live From Reno 2! link and forward to the 19:30 minute mark.
Much love and encouragement to all of you. Life is good… now… because I chose to face the deep seeded paradigm that we lived our lives under. Devon, thank you for coming out to me. My kids, me… the WORLD is better for it.
